Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Internships for people with intellectual disabilities at a leading consultancy
The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities (TCPID) is part of the School of Education at Trinity College, Dublin. It offers a higher education programme and supported transition pathway to employment for people with intellectual disabilities. In 2017 it started a Graduate Internship Programme with international consulting firm Ernst & Young (EY), one of TCPID’s core partners. Six TCPID graduates have completed paid internships with EY, four of whom had a permanent job in 2020.
“My mind has been opened up by Margaret. She had a very positive impact on our wider team and on E&Y.”
