NHS England Choices College

NHS England Choices College is a national specialist college providing tailored educational support, work experience and supported internships for young adults aged 16-24 with learning disabilities/difficulties and/or Autism. They are opening a new provision based at Gateshead’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital in September 2024 and are looking for young people who may be interested in joining the programme.

During the internship learners spend one academic year attending up to three, 12-week placements to increase their vocational knowledge, skills and experience. This is supported by bespoke classroom sessions where Maths, English and Employability Skills are embedded. Interns use the course as a pre-entry level qualification to move into apprenticeships, work or further education.
