About Project Search
Project SEARCH is a one year Internship programme, based on an international model which originated in the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the USA, supporting young people with additional needs to gain skills and experience to go on to employment. Project SEARCH Aberdeen commenced in September 2013 and is hosted by the University (at the King’s College campus). It is delivered in partnership with North East Scotland College, Inspire (Partnership Through Life), Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council and the Scottish Consortium for Learning Disabilities (SCLD).
The programme enables twelve Interns per year to receive support to undertake 3 work placements within the University, whilst studying to attain a vocational qualification. Upon graduation, the Interns receive support to source and sustain paid employment and at the end of the first year of the project, 11 out of 12 graduates gained employment within the Grampian area.
