Entry Requirements

Students require a passion for progressing into work and an EHCP 



I chose a Supported Internship at Plumpton as I felt it met my needs - it meant I was able to go into the Waste Profession industry which is an area that I'm passionate about. I also like the fact the course helps you with other skills to prepare you for adulthood such as getting the bus, building confidence and making friends. I have enjoyed the varied work placements and having a Supported Internship has definitely got me closer to my goal which is to be a happy Recycling Operative.
