Who is it for?
A Supported Internship is a Study Programme for students with an EHCP which is focused on giving you the skills and experience that employers are looking for to help you progress to suitable employment, Traineeships or Apprenticeships.
You will need to hold an Educational, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) that has been issued by your Local Authority. There are no formal academic entry requirements as you will work at your own level, however, a literacy level of at least Entry 1 is advisable. All candidates will be interviewed for suitability. You must be fully committed, reliable and punctual.
What does the course involve?
If you need support to decide on your future plans, have few or no formal qualifications, or need to build confidence before your next step, we can offer you a flexible, tailored study programme that caters for a range of interests.
Your study programme will include employability skills, preparation for adulthood, English and Maths, work experience and the option of other enrichment activities from the wide selection available in college. You will study English and Maths if you do not have a grade 4 or above.
You will attend a work placement for at least two days a week, with supported job coaching as appropriate, where you will have the opportunity to complete work experience with clear objectives, regular feedback, and support in moving towards further study or work.
How is the course assessed?
You will produce a folder of assessed work throughout the course as well as developing your employability skills in the workplace.
How much does it cost?
If you are aged 19 or over you may have to pay some tuition fees. This can be clarified by ringing Admissions on 01743 342346.
You will also be able to gain a Level 1 or 2 Certificate, depending on your level of study. Progression routes are employment, an apprenticeship or voluntary work.
Enrichment activities include rugby, basketball, archery, netball, football, rock climbing and more. Kit and equipment are mandatory in all practical sessions. Please enquire at your interview.

You learn lots of vital skills on the ESOL course, like how to conduct yourself in interviews and manage your time and coursework. I really enjoyed the course and became more confident with my presentation skills. The ESOL course has helped me to improve my English and given me the opportunity to learn new things every day. Now I have a better job, new friends and more free time. At SCG I have been taught to read, write and speak better English.
ESOL gives me the chance to study, improve my English and decide what I want to do in the future. I also like how the teachers explain things when I don’t understand something. The teachers treat us all the same, wherever we come from and other students show respect to each other. The College has given me the chance to learn and do things I haven’t done before.
