At Muntham House School, we are lucky to have supported internships available to us through our connection with Chichester and Brinsbury Colleges. These internships are usually for one year and offer our pupils the chance to access the workplace with support from trained staff. This support is graduated to allow the pupils to gain independence at a level they can manage while learning new skills needed for long term employment. This experience can be valuable to a future employer as it can give the pupil confidence at the skills learned as they demonstrate their value in the workplace.
With placements usually acquired locally, the pupils gain confidence in travelling to work independently via public transport and prove to themselves and others that they can do it. Pupils also attend college one day a week to learn essential skills in Maths and English related to the work they are doing.
