About the course

Do you want to find full time paid work, but need some extra support to get there? Project SEARCH will help you gain skills that will prepare you for a paid job.

Project Search is a Supported Internship run by Bristol City Council, Sixteen Co-Operative Ltd and City of Bristol College working in partnership.

Entry Requirements

Before joining Project Search you will need to come to an informal selection day, and have a discussion to make sure this is the right choice for you. You will also need to have an Education Health & Care Plan (EHCP). We can support you to apply for an assessment for an EHCP when you enquire about Project Search.

What will I do on this course?

You will work 5 days a week during college terms, 9.00AM – 4.00PM each day. After the first couple of weeks you will spend just an hour in the classroom in the morning, and then go to your placement for the rest of the day. You will do three different placements during the year, spending up to 10 weeks in each. A dedicated tutor and job coach will support you.

You will also do classroom work to learn about health & safety and your rights and responsibilities at work, to practice jobsearch skills and to learn what makes a good worker.

Who is it for?

Project Search is for young people aged 16-24 who have had additional support at school/college because of a learning disability and/or autism, and have an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) saying what outcomes they are working towards and what support they will need to achieve these goals.
