Dominic Skeoch

Supported Internships
At LMC Since:
September 2022

The staff at the hospital are very supportive and  will give you a great experience.

Dominic Skeoch works with the Apprenticeship Team and supports and teaches the Supported Internship which we offer in partnership with DFN Project Search.

The Supported Internship is a transition to work programme for young people aged 18-24 who have ann Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) and are keen to gain work experience and develop their skills to be able to get a job. With no exams or assessments, the Supported Internship is great for those individuals who want to gain transferrable skills and experience in the world of work, with support available throughout the duration of the course.

Dominic is the Suportive Internship Lead and he delivers the employability classes and supports the students on their work placements. He works alongside an Employability Coach, would also supports the students in class.

Dominic also helps with job searches, and with the initial creation of CV's. He helps the students with interview techniques, while they experience real working environments, and will even support students working towards their new jobs, once the programme is complete, through an access to work application.

My favourite part of the role is that I get the chance to teach students employability skills, supporting them with job coaching and CV writing. I also enjoy supporting the Interns whilst on their placement who may be looking and applying for their first job. I really  love the idea of the programme and want to ensure that the Interns are supported the best way possible throughout their journey to work.

If you are interested in working but don't know what you want to do, or feel like you need a stepping stone to work, then the Supported Internship provides just that and a whole lot more.

The Internships work placements are currently available with the NHS at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary in lots of different departments across the hospital including:

  • Catering
  • Portering
  • HR
  • Maintenance/Facilities
  • Healthcare Assistants
  • Sterile Services
