Successful supported internships organize an open evening in Petroc

Students in North Devon who have a learning disability or autism are invited to attend a talk at Petroc College on ways to help them gain the skills they need to gain paid employment.

Petroc runs two very successful programs that 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 work outcomes and offers a highly flexible program based at Petroc’s North Devon campus and in the local community that can be tailored to each student’s individual interests.

The event is ideal for young people who are desperate for a job but may lack a bit of confidence or skills. Both supported internship programs, Project SEARCH and The Supported Internship, will be presenting their programs with managers and current students to explain how the program works. This is an ideal opportunity for young people and their support who want to work but need a little extra support and guidance to find out which program is the best fit for them.

Young people with an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) are invited to attend our talks in Petroc on either Wednesday 15th March from 3.30pm to 4.30pm at The Liberty Center in Petroc or on 16th March from 4pm- 17:00 at The Lifestyle Building in Petroc.
