Supported Internships

This is the place where we provide opportunities for local young people to thrive and watch them grow in confidence in the workplace. 

Supported Internship programmes equip young people aged 17-24 who have special education needs and an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) with the skills they need for work through structured and tailored learning in the workplace to achieve sustainable paid employment. 

We offer 4 Supported Internship programmes each academic year in partnership with a local school/college: 

  • Fairfield General Hospital (ElmsBank School, Bury and Pure Innovations) 

  • The Royal Oldham Hospital (New Bridge School, Oldham) 

  • Salford Royal NHS Trust (Eccles Sixth Form College and Pure Innovations) 

  • Rochdale Infirmary (Redwood School, Rochdale)

You must be enrolled at the school or college to be eligible to take part in the internship programme:

Key Information

The year-long programme starts each September

It supports the interns to become work ready by offering classroom learning and three, term-long real work placements. 

Interns are trained and supported by job coaches. 

NCA Disability Awareness Training

We are fortunate to have secured the expertise of Pure Innovations to run an interactive 1 day training course which is ideal for anyone who already supports staff with a disability or would like to learn about how to support interns or job candidates with disabilities to succeed in work.
