SUPPORTED INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME (SIP)
A one-year programme based mostly in the workplace of a partnered employer. Through our accredited Centre with Open Awards (a national Awarding Body), candidates receive a Level 1 certificate in ‘Skills in further learning and employment’. This includes developing positive behaviour in the workplace, learning how to be assertive and managing stress at work. This enables our candidates to better cope in a busy and often unfamiliar work environment.
Through all our programmes our candidates benefit from:
• Classroom based pre-employment training through a registered qualification
• Workplace knowledge through external work experience
• Mental health and wellbeing support
• Developing communication and social skills
• Life skills and independence
Interested candidates are then invited for an informal interview and a trial at one of our training cafés – Café Domenica.

75% of candidates are offered paid employment positions through this programme.
WRAP AROUND PROGRAMME (WAP)
Our WAP is designed to support and sustain candidates who transition into paid work. A high level of continued support from a Training Mentor is provided to candidates in functional literacy, communication and social skills, money handling and independent travel training
