Project SEARCH open day for 16 to 24 year old with SEND

Project SEARCH is holding an open day on Thursday 5 December at Whipps Cross hospital at 2.00pm to 4.00pm. Young people, school staff, and parents/carers are all invited along to find out about this extraordinarily effective internship programme that helps young people with special educational needs into proper employment. 

The year-long programme is based in Whipps Cross hospital, and interns combine training with three different job placements in a variety of clinical and non-clinical departments. 70% of our interns have gone on to find full-time employment.  

You can find out more about Project SEARCH East London at www.projectsearch.org.uk

Applications are beginning to be taken for internships that will begin in September 2020 and the open day is an ideal time to get all your questions answered, meet the team and get a feel for the programme. Spread the word and change a life. 

It’s always handy to know roughly how many people are coming, so if you can, RSVP to janet.wingate-whyte@nhs.net
