Award in Workskills Level 1 (Supported Internship) Level 1 | BTEC 6-credit Award in Workskills

Information Apply



The Supported Internship is a one year programme (academic year) for young people with learning disabilities to gain experience within the world of work.

It is an opportunity for young people to learn new skills and to improve their prospect of being offered paid employment in the future.

A Supported Internship allows you to continue your development and education through work-based learning. You will spend three days a week with your employer, receiving on-the-job training, as well as support from the Job Coach, as well as continuing to do one day a week at college. This is so you can still develop your English and Maths skills, Employability, and Workplace training until you have completed your Internship.

You are fully supported in the workplace by a Job Coach and gain a variation of skills throughout your time on the Internship.

What do I need to join?

Every young person must have an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan). Young people are selected for an assessment day which will determine their place on the course. This assessment is based on current English and Maths levels, four different workplace tasks, face-to-face interview and their own attitude towards the world of work. If learners that apply for this course are applying externally, the college will have access to their personal profiles and have a copy of their EHCP prior to the assessment. Learners will also need to link up with the college prior to the course to ensure we can get to know them and that they are suitable for the course.

Previous work

What can I do next?

At the end of the academic year, you may be able to secure either a part or full-time employment and would have gained further confidence and employability skills.
