Parents in Partnership Stockport




The Councils committed to the belief that the overwhelming majority of young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are capable of sustainable paid employment. Stockport Council's supported internship programme is designed to develop the skills and experience young people need to enable them to progress on to their chosen next steps.

What are Supported Internships?

Supported Internships are structured study programmes within an employer based settling. They are aimed at helping young people aged 18 - 24 with a Learning Difficulty Assessment (LDA) or Educational Health and Care (EHC) Plan gain meaningful work experience in a vocational area of their choice with the potential of a paid job at the end of it.

How will Supported Internships work?

Stockport Council (Education) will create internships within a range of council departments.


Partnerships with local colleges (The Cheadle & Marple College Network & Aquinas College) will enable young people to develop individual learning priorities, which reflect their goals and aspirations.
