What Our Students Say

“Before I came to Leeds City College, I was in school, I was in such a bad way at school, skiving lessons all the time, teachers always on my case, getting kicked out numerous times almost. So I applied for here just hoping to get on a course, I got accepted – it was entry Level 3. Dave was my tutor and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better as a tutor, because he just helped me. He helped me with every regard, with Maths and English, workshop work, the theory side of the workshop work – telling me how everything is and showing me what’s what.”

Harrison

“So the tutors are great for a number of reasons – they’re casual, you don’t feel like you’re being forced to do anything that’s uncomfortable, they’re not strict, they’ll have a laugh with you if you want to and they know how to get stuff done when they need to if we’re on a bit of a time crunch, but they also know how to have a bit of fun and not put pressure on you – and they’re great, they’re always there to give you information if you need it for at-home tasks and they’re always on Google Hangouts to message you if you need anything and they get back to you really quickly.”

Rachel

“The decision that made me pick between here and other places was when I came to the open day everyone was just really friendly and open, and it just felt like a really welcoming environment to be in.”

Introduction

Supported Internships are a structured, work-based study programme for 16-24 year olds with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), who have an education, health and care plan (EHCP).

Overview

Supported Internships are a structured, work-based study programme for 16-24
year olds with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), who have an
education, health and care plan (EHCP). The aim is to support students to gain
paid employment by equipping them with the skills they need for work, through
learning in the workplace.


Students spend two days in the workplace learning real skills, and one day in
college focusing on English, maths and employability skills.


Students are supported by our expert job coaches throughout the programme.
Each individual will follow a personalised study programme alongside their time
at the employer.


The internship runs for one academic year. The work placement is unpaid with
the goal for successful students to secure a paid job at the end of their
internship.
