Project Search - Glasgow Royal Infirmary Hospital

Project Search student groupWork-based Course 

Glasgow Clyde College works in partnership with Glasgow City Council Supported Employment Service and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to deliver Project Search – a course for students with learning disabilities, who wish to increase their employment opportunities. 

Project Search provides the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience by offering a number of work placements called rotations. Rotations may include: portering ,catering, domestic, administration and others as appropriate.  Students will also develop skills that will help them gain employment such as CV writing, interview techniques and working with others.

The course is based at Glasgow Royal Infirmary where students will carry out their rotations and also attend classes.

The course will run from August to June, five days a week, Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm

Students are supported throughout the course by a college lecturer, a job coach and hospital staff. 

All students have a Personal Learning and Support Plan to enable each student’s learning to be tailored to suit their needs and goals. All students receive personalised guidance and support at regular meetings. 

Students can apply for financial help in the form of a bursary.
