From September this year, Harrogate College will be running a Supported
Internship programme in conjunction with Harrogate and District NHS Foundation
Trust, DFN Project Search and HFT.
The programme runs over the college academic year, starting in early
September and finishing in mid-July. It follows the pattern of the academic year
so interns would have the usual college holidays but unlike most of our courses
which span 3-4 days, the Supported Internship is Monday to Friday 9am-4pm. The
programme generally includes three different rotations within the hospital.
A typical day starts with a general catch up and some work on employability
skills – this is led by the college’s Co-ordinator and supported by a Job Coach.
Interns will then go to work in their respective departments from 10am and
finish at 3.30pm and then go back to their base room for a daily debrief with
the job coach and college Coordinator. Each intern would normally be placed in a
different department so they feel a full part of that team rather than a group
of college students on a work placement.
