Webinar: Supported Internships For Young People With SEND

Spotlight on supported internships – A webinar for parents and carers of young people preparing for adult life

This webinar is being run by the National Development Team For Inclusion, an organisation that aims to enable people at risk of exclusion, due to age or disability, to live the life they choose.

Thursday 18 May, 10.30am – 12.00pm (on Teams)

Join them to learn more about supported internships and how they can benefit your child. This online event is particularly designed for parents, carers, and representatives from Parent Carer Forums. During the webinar, you’ll hear personal experiences from past supported interns and employers, and see how they benefited from the internship.  You’ll also hear from a government representative explaining how the government supports more young people with SEND into work.

More Info: Supported internships are study programmes for young people, aged 16 to 24, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and want to move into employment, but need some extra support.  They provide work experience for young people with disabilities so they can gain skills and develop in confidence. In brief, supported internships give young people an opportunity to take their first steps into the world of employment, build skills in the workplace, gain qualifications, and use these to potentially get a paid job.
