AIM (Assisted Internship Model)


Assisted Internship Model is a way of helping young people with a disability or boundary to employment take their first steps towards a paid job.  Assisted Internship offers an opportunity for you to gain practical working experience and improve your prospects of being offered paid employment.  You will be assisted in the workplace by job coaches who will develop the skills required for you to succeed in the workplace and take your first step onto the job ladder.

AIM takes place in the last year of college and lasts for one academic year.  As an Intern you will spend three days a week with an employer, receiving on the job training and support from your job coach. You will continue to attend college one day a week to keep developing your English and Maths Skills, Employability and Workplace training, until you have completed your Internship.
