Yes the guidance for supported internships states that anyone of any ability should be able to gain employment. Our task is to find the right job, provide the right support to them and to educate employers on adjustments that can be made in the workplace.
The programme itself is very new and we are working hard to try and get information out to schools and families. I did send letters to all of the special schools around Peterborough this year about the programme but I never heard anything back! It is definitely something we are trying to promote all the time though.
If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask me.
