Get Set Progress - Internship Programme

Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT)

Thomas Pocklington Trust (TPT) has run a programme of paid internships since 2015, with 85% of interns going on to gain paid employment within six months.

  • Only 27% of working age blind or partially sighted people are in work.
  • 90% of those with the most severe sight loss are not in work.

Our internships provide targeted support and experience within the world of work to ensure positive employment outcomes.

“I think this whole experience has really transformed things… it’s given me a really strong career path that I just did not have before… it’s given me that wave that I can ride, and I’m just determined just to ride it as far as I can”.
