Apprenticeships and Supported Internships - Transition Guide
An apprenticeship is a paid job with associated training. It allows you to earn while you learn. You will get a nationally recognised qualification.
You can apply for Access to Work support when on an apprenticeship. This is funding or support for people with a disability or health condition. These can be accessed with or without an EHC plan. (See page Access to Work)

Young people with an EHC plan can take part in supported internships. These help you prepare for a job or an apprenticeship.
Supported internships are study programmes based mainly at an employer. They are designed to help you and others with SEND get a paid job by giving you the skills you need.
Internships usually last for a year. They include unpaid work placements of at least six months. Wherever possible, they support you to move into a paid job at the end of the programme.
