About internships

Internships give you work experience with a company to help you prepare for the job you want to do. They can be paid or unpaid.

Supported internships help young people with special educational needs or disabilities to get the skills they need to find work.

Before you look for an internship it’s useful to think about your interests, skills you want to develop and the type of job you want to have in the future.
