A young person with special education needs was successful in turning an internship into a permanent position at Jubilee Street Practice.
Juned gained experience at the practice through DFN Project Search, which empowers young individuals with learning disabilities and autism by helping them navigate the world of work.
The Training Hub issued a call to organisations and practices to participate in project last year and the Jubilee Street Practice was the first Care Group practice to commit and take part in this programme.
They welcomed Juned into their team for a 12-week period, and he thrived while working closely with the Jubilee Street team.
Throughout this time, Juned displayed unwavering dedication in acquiring new skills and honing his existing abilities.
His commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and warmly welcoming patients left a lasting impression on his supervisors and colleagues.
Juned's outstanding contributions did not go unnoticed by the Jubilee Street Practice's senior management team, specifically their administrative and IT lead, Kamal Uddin, who offered him a permanent position at the practice.
The Training Hub is actively seeking organisations to host interns during DFN Project Search’s third rotation, expected to take place roughly between May and July 2024.
Organisations that can provide high-quality experiences for young people should complete our expression of interest form.
