About us

We are people with and without learning difficulties and/or autism, working and learning together. Whether it’s to be seen working, be heard campaigning or belong to a friendly group of people, people achieve their goals with bemix.

Our Supported Internships are a one-year programme that works closely with you to build your confidence and prepare you for the world of work.

We work with you in your work placement to support and grow your independence and employability skills. Our Supported Internships work for young people who learn best when doing. We will help you find a placement that suits you, paying attention to your goals and aspirations.

You will have a work coach who will be with you every step of the way and regularly check that everything is going okay.
We aim to help you to find paid employment or an alternative work pathway at the end of the programme!

Supported Internships help you grow your confidence and find paid work doing something you enjoy.

What makes us different?

We support people to hear, respect and empower people with learning difficulties and/or autism.

We promote positive action to challenge negative attitudes about disability.

We work with local communities so that people with learning difficulties and/or autism become fully included and no longer segregated.


Student support

We have very small class sizes of about 8 students, that are supported by a Teacher and a Teaching Assistant. Whilst in your work placement, you are supported individually by a Work Coach. This support will slowly reduce as your confidence and independence grows. 

Transport

Your work coach can support you with travel training, to and from your workplace. We can also support you to apply for bus passes and rail cards.
