The Pre-Supported Internship is a one to two-year programme for young people with learning disabilities to help them prepare for the transition from the college setting towards employment. It is an opportunity for young people to learn new skills and to improve their prospect of being offered paid employment in the future and progress onto a Supported Internship programme. A Supported Internship allows you to continue your development and education through work-based learning. The course is based onsite with an employer one day a week where you will be receiving on-the-job training, as well as support from the Job Coach. You will continue to attend college for two days a week. This is so you can still develop your English and Maths skills, Employability, and Workplace training until you have completed the course. You are fully supported in the workplace by a Job Coach and gain a variation of skills throughout your time on the course.
This course is based at our Filton campus, located in South Gloucestershire which is easily accessible from the city of Bristol by train (Bristol Parkway / Bristol Abbey Wood) and bus.
