Project SEARCH has been at St George’s since 2012. It’s a supported internship programme for people with learning disabilities (aged 18-24) and takes place between September and July.

During their time at St George’s, the trainees learn about work and develop their employability skills by carrying out unpaid work experience in departments across the trust.

During one year, each trainee will undertake three placements while the Project SEARCH team support them and look for jobs for them once they graduate from Project SEARCH. Out of the 15 former students at St George’s, 12 have gone on to employment internally and externally from St George’s.

The team is currently matching entrants to places for the September start.
