DfE seeks provider info on internships outcomes

The Department for Education has published a SEND newsletter and is requesting information about the delivery of supported internships.

Local authorities have recently been funded £9.7m to set up local supported internship forums and train more job coaches.  DfE is hoping to gather information about how many supported internships are being delivered, any barriers to delivery, and what more we can do to support their increase. If you deliver supported internships (or are planning to), they would be grateful if you could spare a few minutes to fill in the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K3VRHVY.  

If you work in a local authority or supported employment provider, please encourage the education providers you work with to fill in this survey.

BASE has been conducting a survey into the use of Access to Work within the delivery of supported internships. This survey will remain open until 30 June and you can tell us about your experiences at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/base-atw
