Royal Mencap Society Interns and Outcomes Supported Internship Programme

Study programme to develop work skills and get workplace experience for young people with SEND

Interns and Outcomes is Mencap’s Supported Internship programme. To be eligible, you will need to be 18-24, have an Education, Health and Care plan and be classed as a higher needs learner.

Interns and Outcomes:

  • is an unpaid programme lasting for about a year
  • is designed to be flexible so it can meet individual needs and choices
  • will develop English and maths levels through practical tasks
  • will include at least 300 hours of work experience

The aim of Interns and Outcomes is to help progress each intern towards and, ideally into, work. The work experience placement will be in a real work setting, learning skills required in a real job. Mencap has a number of relationships with employers across a range of sectors and we will work closely with each intern to identify the right placement to help develop their skills and career aspirations. Mencap will provide a trained job coach/assessor to help each intern learn on the job, including how to apply English and maths in the workplace.

We hope to secure paid work for each intern at the end of the programme. If this is not possible with the work experience employer, we will seek opportunities elsewhere and/or consider progression onto another programme, so the learner can continue to receive support, if needed, in order to achieve a positive outcome.
