2017 Department of Education and Training, Higher Education and Skills Fellowship recipient

Fellowship aims: Examine the UK Supported Internship Model for young people with disability.

Since the Fellowship study was completed, a strategic partnership has been established with the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. A supported internship pilot project commenced in 2018 and ten students were selected to participate in the program. They were placed in a range of settings within the hospital including human resources, allied health, CSSD (central sterilising service department), RCH Foundation, medical records, food services and the early learning centre. The pilot program was a huge success, and the program is now embedded within the hospital. The Royal Melbourne Hospital and the City of Casey have committed to running similar programs in 2021. To date, 18 young people with disability have gained meaningful employment because of the implementation of Jan's Fellowship learnings.
