Supported Internship at Birmingham City Council - 2023 - 2024



At HBVC, we are passionate about supporting young people with SEND into the world of work; we are therefore delighted to be able to extend our Supported Internship offer for 2023-2024. Working in partnership with DFN Project Search, Birmingham City Council and Mencap from September 2023, we will be delivering Supported Internships at three different locations in Birmingham City Centre. This will be an exciting and immersive experience, where students will be able to develop their employability skills through Supported Internship placements within the host organisation (Birmingham City Council), receive on-the-job training and personalised learning/support to fully prepare themfor the world of work and achieve their desired outcomes, which may lead to paid employment.

Students who successfully gain a place on these Supported Internships can expect to attend some traditional classroom-based sessions, within the host organisation, however, the majority of the time will be spent on a work placement where they will learn and experience job roles within different departments at Birmingham City Council. All students will receive appropriate levels of support via a Job Coach and Instructor who will personalise their learning to ensure that all students are given the right support and learning to succeed.

To be considered for this Supported Internship programme, applicants must have Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities, applicants with or without an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will be considered.
