The supported internship partnership between the Pathways department and Pure innovations is employment-based, giving students with additional needs the opportunity to develop employability skills for paid employment. They are based in real work places and involve working alongside other working people. Each intern receives a support plan tailored to their needs. Their skills are matched to job roles within the employer’s organisation, for example, clerical, catering or portering. They then undertake a rotation of three ten-week work placements giving them experience in a variety of jobs.
