Interns and employers celebrate success

Posted: 08 August 2023

West Nottinghamshire College’s supported internship team celebrated with jubilant student interns with a celebratory meal in the college’s Refined restaurant.

For the academic year 2022/23 seven students have worked with companies such as Mansfield Museum and Palace Theatre, Nottinghamshire County Council, Gedling Borough Council, Capita and Homestart in roles such as sensory technician, front of house assistant and gallery assistant.

Students, teachers and employers joined together before the summer term ended to praise the huge efforts that students have contributed to their roles within the companies over the past year through the work placement part of the course.

The supported internship course enables students to gain confidence and employability skills ready for the workplace. Work placement is combined with classroom sessions as well as assistance from the college’s job coaches who help to support them with career aspirations and building up of confidence and personal goals.

The college’s SEND employability manager Louise Dakin said: “It was wonderful to join together to celebrate the amazing achievements and successes of our students this year. We’ve watched them grow in both confidence and skills alike.

“Our employers have supported them both professionally and personally, helping them to discover the many responsibilities in the workplace and how to provide great customer service in a range of industries.

“I am thrilled that one of the students will be returning to college to study full-time, four have secured full and part-time employment and one student will be working as a volunteer in their chosen industry. I couldn’t be prouder!”
