Traineeships, internships and apprenticeships
Supported Internships are work-based learning placements for young people aged 16-24 with learning disabilities and autism, who have a current Education, Health and Care plan.
The aim is for the young person to receive training, support and skills in order to help secure a job at the end of the placement. Placements should last between 6-9 months and usually be up to 3 days a week with an opportunity to rotate around tasks. This is unpaid work. The remainder of their time will be taken up in education developing their maths, English, customer service and work engagement skills.
Supported Internships are currently available through Walsall College and Nova Training. For further information on supported internship placements within Walsall Council please contact the Learning and Development team.
An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. By the end of an apprenticeship, you will have the skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.
You can find out more about apprenticeships, where to find them and how to apply on our Walsall Works webpages.
