Upcoming webinars

Spotlight on supported internships - a webinar for parents and carers of young people preparing for adult life

Thursday 18 May - 10:30am to midday

Join us to learn more about supported internships and how they can benefit your child. Supported internships are study programmes for young people, aged 16 to 24, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and want to move into employment, but need some extra support. They provide work experience for young people with disabilities so they can gain skills and develop in confidence. In brief, supported internships give young people an opportunity to take their first steps into the world of employment, build skills in the workplace, gain qualifications, and use these to potentially get a paid job. 

This online event is particularly designed for parents, carers, and representatives from Parent Carer Forums. During the webinar we will hear personal experiences from past supported interns and employers, and see how they benefited from the internship. We will also hear from a government representative explaining how the government supports more young people with special educational needs and disabilities into work.

Book your place on the spotlight on supported internships webinar on the eventbrite website.
