Project SEARCH - Forth Valley Royal Hospital

Forth Valley College


Falkirk Campus


The programme enables 12 young people per year to receive support to undertake work placements across a range of job areas, all based within Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert. On-site, interns will be assisted throughout by a college lecturer and a job coach, as well as hospital staff and supervisors.

Project SEARCH is a transition to work programme for people aged 18 to 24, with learning disabilities. It effectively takes the classroom into the hospital and teaches interns employability skills on-site, in a real workplace environment.

The programme helps interns to learn real job skills that will prepare them for work by rotating them through a variety of different work placement experiences. This work-based learning is then supported by classroom activities each day, as well as regular discussion and feedback from supervisors throughout the programme.
