Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is very proud to be the employment partner for Project SEARCH Bradford, which provides young people with learning difficulties with the opportunity gain work experience to increase their chance of securing meaningful paid employment.
Since the first programme was launched at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in 1996, the Project SEARCH model has expanded to more than 300 sites across the United States and the rest of the world.
Bradford Project SEARCH is an annual programme which provides three internships which offer students continual feedback on their performance and areas for learning and improvement.
Interns carry out real jobs in real work environments. They have the opportunity to think about what job they would like to do, and we aim to match their interests and skills with work placements.
Interns must also develop a career plan with our job coach and tutor.
