Supported Internships

As part of the personalised learning offer at Blueberry Academy, young people can access Supported Internships.

These programmes have a minimum of 2 days per week in the workplace and have additional learning activities to work on developing the skills and qualities required for work. Blueberry works with a range of employers within the city and are currently supporting 5 internships with Oscars Restaurant, Barnitts and York St John University.

Our advice and guidance team looks at the full range of needs a person has (travel, money, etc.) and supports trainees to explore  employment, either with the placement provider or to apply for other employment matching their skills and abilities. 

Supported Internships can be an immediate option for some people, though it may also suit as a second year following on from an initial year of personalised learning on an employment pathway.
