Successful Supported Internships Hold Open Evening
Students across North Devon who have a learning disability or autism are being invited to attend a talk at Petroc College about ways to help them gain the skills required to get paid employment.
Petroc runs two highly successful programs which support people into the world of work.
Project SEARCH is based at North Devon District Hospital and has won awards for its long term employment rate which is currently 87%! The Supported Internship has excellent employment outcomes and offers a highly flexible program, based at Petroc’s North Devon campus and in the local community, which can be tailored to meet the individual interests of each student.
The event is ideal for young people who are desperate to work but perhaps lack a bit of confidence or skills. Both supported internship programs, Project SEARCH and The Supported Internship, will be showcasing their programs with managers and current students on hand to explain how the program works. It is an ideal opportunity for young people and their support who want to work but need a little bit of extra support and guidance to find out which program is best suited to them.
Young people with an Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are invited to attend our Petroc talks on either Wednesday 15 March from 3:30-4:30pm at The Liberty Centre at Petroc, or on 16 March from 4:00-5:00pm in The Lifestyle Building at Petroc.
