Course overview

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.

  • Entry Requirements

    Applicants must be 18-24yrs old and have an EHCP. If they wish to be considered for a Supported Internship, there is a recruitment & selection event planned for Friday 10th June from 12pm.
