Supported Internship forums

Year of Publication: 

In November 2017, the Government announced £9.7m for local authorities to increase the number of supported internships and other pathways to employment for young people with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities), by establishing local supported internship forums and training additional job coaches. 

This document provides more information about setting up a local supported internship forum and the benefits of doing so for young people with SEND, and includes a case study of an existing forum in Leeds.  It also provides information about job coach training, and a list of useful contacts.

BASE can offer tailored support to organisations that are looking to establish Supported Internships.
