The Grove Pre- Internship in Partnership with Haringey Council and DFN Project SEARCH 

Six placements are available for this pre-internship programme, which starts on 9 September 2024.

Launching in September 2024, the pre-internship programme provides a bridge between college and the route into employment. The pre-internship pathway provides that additional time to build independence and work skills in preparation for the internship programme.
