The West London Guide to Supported Internships 2019

West London Boroughs are proud to work with employers and education providers in West London to facilitate and support the establishment and development of supported internships and supported employment initiatives. Over 200 young people with learning disabilities are currently undertaking these programmes in London every year, with an average employment achievement rate of over 60%.

Supported Internships are designed to develop transferable skills, knowledge and attitudes in preparation for paid employment. Through training and direct work experience young people will develop employability skills, self-confidence, job-specific skills and Maths, English and ICT skills whilst working alongside employees in a real employment setting.

The details of 20 of these programmes are contained in the booklet available in the 'Downloads' section.
