WE ALSO OFFER

Supported Internships 

In addition to our full-time and residential programmes we offer supported internships as a transition from college to full time working.

You will spend most of your time in a range of work place settings that interest you and meet your long term work ambitions.  Job coaches from the college Careers team will help you to settle in to your work placements. 

ANNOUNCEMENT: Please note: This year (2018/19) Fairfield will be running a pre-internship programme based at the Hope Nature Centre. This is an exciting new venture that allows us to develop and apply the skills acquired at college in a purpose built Animal Park for young people with learning disabilities. The Centre comprises a 15 acre site with a range of exciting animals and activities for families, including a land train, animal  walk, park area and cafe. For more information: http://www.hopenaturecentre.org.uk/
