Project SEARCH at St George's

Project SEARCH prepares young people for the world of employment. The Project SEARCH scheme offers young people with Learning Difficulties the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in ‘real ‘work situations through work placements within the hospital.

The programme runs for one academic year and follows the school terms. Trainees attend full time Monday – Friday. Trainees spend most of their day in their work placements but there are also classroom sessions where learning can be reinforced, and any issues addressed.

Trainees must be aged between 18 and 24 and must have a current EHCP (education Health and Care Plan) in order to secure funding from their Local Authority. (Merton, Wandsworth, Sutton and Croydon).

Project SEARCH provides real life work experience combined with training in employability and independent living skills, as well as formulating a CV, to help young people with disabilities make successful transitions from school to productive adult life. The goal for each student is competitive employment somewhere in the community using the skills they have acquired at St George’s.
