Supported Internships (Hospitality and Leisure)

WHO ARE WE?

We (The Bosco Centre) are working in partnership with Southwark Council to help provide supported internships for students with EHCP’s.

WHAT IS A SUPPORTED INTERNSHIP?

It is a training programme to prepare you for work, where you will do different placements in a business environment to develop your skills. It will also give you the opportunity to complete a qualification in Personal Development and maybe Maths and English….and hopefully gain paid employment at the end. You should also expect learners to be fully supported during the internship.

WHAT DO I NEED?

Be aged between 17-25 years old, have a active EHCP and have a positive attitude. 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • A Mentor in your team to teach you new tasks
  • A Tutor to teach you your qualification
  • Help will be given to build learner’s’ CV’s and portfolios and assistance will be given to learners to find paid employment at the end of their time with us.
  • Job coach’s will help ensure that learners have fully understood the task and boost their confidence.
  •  Learners will receive £30 per week to cover travel costs with independent travel assistance
