New Supported Internship Programme Launched

Active Prospects has secured a grant of £35,000 from Surrey County Council’s SEND Enterprise Programme to launch a new Supported Internship programme.

Active Prospects has been chosen as one of three providers to work in partnership with SEND Enterprise and East Surrey College.  Eight interns, who will start later in 2017, will work in roles across Active Prospects gaining skills and practical work experience to help them on a pathway to paid work.  Interns will work across the organisation, in roles such as property maintenance, IT, marketing or admin, as well as within our residential care homes.  Interns will gain employability skills such as teamwork, personal presentation and reliability and skills for independence such as travelling by public transport and shopping for lunch.  They will have access to training in topics such as Health & Safety, Equality and Diversity, and Safeguarding.

The internship programme lasts for one year and towards the end of the course, interns will be supported to secure progression opportunities within Active Prospects or externally, this might be further work experience or into paid jobs.
