Project SEARCH

Are you 17 to 24 years old with a learning disability or autism and looking for a full time job?

We have partnered with Hillingdon Council and DFN Project SEARCH to host a Transition to Work programme.

During this one year programme, you’ll be based at the Civic Centre in Uxbridge gaining a range of transferable and marketable job skills such as team-working and problem-solving. With 800 hours of structured support from staff, mentors, instructors and coaches, you’ll become more confident when applying for a job. The DFN Project SEARCH programme has seen 60% of graduates securing a paid job (16 hours or more per week).

The programme is in partnership with Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support (HACS), experts in supporting people with learning disabilities and autism.

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
