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. 

Supported Internship in collaboration with Wiltshire Employment Support Team (WEST). This is a 3 day programme that works with young people to tailor and support them into a work placement.  The programme runs from Fairfield Farm but is supported by professional Job Coaches.

Pre-Internship: an exciting new venture that allows young people to firstly 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.
