During the first 2-3 first weeks of the Autumn term, the interns will complete the NHS hospital induction training.

Then, the week will be divided into two different parts:

• Theory work: includes lessons following Queensmill College – Employability Skills curriculum, which includes working towards achieving an ASDAN Award in Employability.

• Practical work: includes 3 internships in 3 different departments across the hospital. This will provide varied work experiences and help develop relevant employability skills.

The SCERTS model and other autism-specific strategies are also followed to help the interns manage their autism and ease anxiety in the workplace.
