Employer Guide to Supported Internships

The extent of a person’s ambitions and their ability to follow their dreams depends on how they have been supported throughout their life.

Supported internships offer young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) the chance to develop skills and achieve sustained employment.

The benefits to businesses are also huge, including higher morale and productivity, and lower staff turnover and recruitment and training costs.

We have created a comprehensive guide with everything you need to know.
