Project Choice - Supported Internships
Project Choice is a Work Experience Pathway for Students with learning difficulties/disabilities or ASD.
Project Choice is a supported internship programme for people with learning disabilities, difficulties or autism (LDDA). NHS Health Education England, support NHS Trusts to deliver the programme nationally. The focus is ‘work readiness’ and matching skills to employment.
The project teams ensure there are placements across the Trusts looking specifically at entry-level jobs to make sure the right learner is allocated to this role. They also work closely with managers to confirm that tasks are clearly understood.
The young learners spend a minimum of 10 weeks in their placement and are integrated into teams. The Project Choice team uses this time to look at any barriers and potential areas of development. Throughout, the learners are gradually assessed on how ready for employment they are.
A minimum of 12 internships are supported annually, ensuring learners are ready for entry level roles or above.
