We would like to say a huge congratulations to all of our Supported Interns from the 2016-17 academic year – all of whom have not only graduated, but have also now successfully gone into paid employment.
Our Interns attended a graduation event at Sky High Adventure last week, along with family members, colleagues and support staff. The event celebrated the journeys and successes that the Interns have achieved through completing the programme.

Supported Internship open for applications
The Supported Internship at Active Tameside, which is run in partnership with Pure Innovations, Tameside Council and Tameside College, is an employment-based programme for young people with learning difficulties or additional needs. The course enables the Interns to develop employability skills, gain qualifications and gain the confidence to go into employment.
This year’s Supported Internship programme has had a 100% success rate. Applications are now open for the next Supported Internship, which starts in September 2017. Active Tameside are on the look-out for 12 young adults, who are keen to learn and gain the skills to help them to go into paid employment.
