answer text <p>The special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) reforms have been designed to increase aspirations across the system, including among parents, children and young people themselves and the education and health professionals that support them. This includes making it a legal requirement that all children and young people with SEND must be prepared for adulthood, including employment.</p><p>Supported internships offer young people with SEND a clear pathway into employment. We are keen to do more to increase the uptake of supported internships and are considering how we can build the evidence base further, including looking into current models of supported internship delivery, to enable us to share evidence with providers of promising practice.</p><p>We continue to fund a range of support across the system to raise aspirations and also consistently communicate our expectations to stakeholders, including schools and colleges. This includes providing £9.7 million to local authorities, in 2018, to establish local supported internship forums, bringing together local partners to develop and deliver supported internships in their area. Funding can also be used to train job coaches.</p><p>Good practice examples of supported internships are also gathered by our delivery partner, National Development Team for Inclusion, and published on the Preparing for Adulthood website: <a href="https://www.preparingforadulthood.org.uk/downloads/employment" target="_blank">https://www.preparingforadulthood.org.uk/downloads/employment</a>.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>Providers are free to design their supported internship programme (a type of post-16 study programme) to fit their local circumstances and to meet the needs of their learners. However, the following principles should be followed and met, in order for a supported internship to be recorded as completed:</p><ul><li><p>A significant majority of the intern’s time must be spent at the employer’s premises (work placements of at least 6 months). Whilst at the employer, the young person will be expected to comply with real job conditions.</p></li></ul><p> </p><ul><li><p>Interns must do some form of learning alongside their time at the employer, including relevant aspects of English and maths.</p></li></ul><p> </p><ul><li><p>Work placement jobs must work for both the young person and the employer. For the young person, the job must fit with their vocational profile, contribute to their long term career goal and be flexible to address barriers where necessary. For the employer, they must meet a real business need. As the goal is for the young person to end up in paid employment, employers taking on interns should have a job available to offer at the end of it, should the intern meet the standard.</p></li></ul><p> </p><ul><li><p>The provision of support to the young person and to the employer, including job coaching support.</p></li></ul><p> </p><p>Learning providers must complete the Individual Learner Record funding return confirming that the young person has met the core aims of their supported internship.​</p>
