The project provides young adults who have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP), aged 18-24, who have autism or learning difficulties, with the opportunity to complete a series of work rotations within Gulliver’s Kingdom Matlock. The project enables young adults to gain valuable experience and competitive job skills in order to make successful transitions towards equitable employment. Being fully immersed in the workplace allows interns to feel like part of the workforce ensuring their experience of both work and learning is realistic and meaningful.

Who is the internship for? The programme may be right for you if: 

  • you are aged 16 to 24-years-old
  • have a current Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP)
  • you feel ready to commit to a full-time, Monday to Friday programme
  • you want to secure paid employment for at least 16 hours per week, after the programme
  • you are able to travel to the site

What support is available?

Interns are supported on-site, by a job coach and tutor, who are based at Gulliver's Kingdom all the time. Their role is to foster independence and confidence, enabling the interns to learn their tasks, and to complete them to the same standard as everyone else. Interns will work directly with mentors in their working areas.
