Newham Supported Internships

The Newham Supported Internship program aims to help people with special educational needs gain work experience, confidence and other skills needed to get into employment.

This is a five-day study program based at the respective employers’ location and a typical day runs from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm with a minimum of 4 hours in work each day. You will be learning English, Maths and Employability skills whilst on your Supported Internship.

Following Supported Internships, many of our SEND learners secure full-time employment.
