Supported internships (16 to 24 years with EHCP)

Supported Internship

At Medway NHS Foundation Trust we offer supported internship opportunities for people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities aged 16 to 24 with an educational health care plan (EHCP) and host placements for up to 12-months by working with a local specialist training provider.

The aim of the programme is to build work skills and support the intern's independence to access employment. The Trust offers placements in a variety of areas across the hospital and works with Bemix to facilitate the education and work coaching to assist and build each intern's knowledge, skills and behaviours within the workplace.

Placements currently being offered in:

  • Catering
  • Portering
  • Post room
  • Laundry
  • Medical Health Records
