Project SEARCH – work experience/internship programme for young people with learning disabilities (London Borough of Hounslow)
Do you want to work but need help?
Project SEARCH could be for you if you are looking for an intensive job coaching programme with progression into paid work and:
- are aged 18-24 years of age
- have completed your final year of school education
- have evidence of learning difficulties or disabilities
What is Project Search?
Project SEARCH is a supported internship programme to help young people with learning difficulties or disabilities secure and keep paid permanent jobs. It is a unique, business-led, one-year, school-to-work programme that takes place entirely at the workplace.
Project Search Interns spend the major part of their day working in a Council department with the support of a Skills Trainer, with the remainder spent in the classroom consolidating work skills and working towards a City & Guilds qualification in Employability Skills (planning for progression, effective communication and searching for a job).
