Project Search in Calderdale Helps Young People with Learning Disabilities

A new scheme in Calderdale is helping young people with learning disabilities to prepare for life in the workplace.

Calderdale Council, Calderdale College and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust launched ‘Project Search’ in September 2017 and it’s already having benefits for the 12 young adults involved.

The scheme offers a year-long supported internship combining classroom-based learning delivered by Calderdale College and work experience with the Council and the NHS. The aim is to boost opportunities to learn new skills to help secure full-time, paid employment.

Cllr Megan Swift, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, said:

We want to ensure that when people with learning disabilities leave school or college, they have access to good-quality, paid jobs and can achieve their full potential. Project Search is a great opportunity for them to gain knowledge and practical experience in a safe and supported environment.” 

Laura Lavender, Team Leader – Employability & Life Skills, Calderdale College, said:

“We are so proud of our interns’ progress so far – they have really stepped up to the challenge and have become real assets to the teams they’re working in. Project Search is a fantastic supported internship model which we are hoping will make a big difference to the long term career prospects of the young people taking part. We are thrilled to be involved in this project and are dedicated to ensuring its success.”

The Council and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust are working together to provide a variety of work experience to the young people enrolled on the scheme. From September to December 2017 the work placements are based at the Council, and from January 2018 they will be provided at Calderdale Royal Hospital.

Where can I go to get more information? 

You can speak to a member of staff at Calderdale College, your C&K Careers advisor at your school, Lead the Way or the SEND Team. Leaflets about Project SEARCH can be posted to you by calling the Admissions Team at Calderdale College, phone: 01422 399316, or pick one up from the College Admissions Team.
