Project SEARCH

The new Project SEARCH Dumfries & Galloway is a one-year internship for students with disabilities or additional support needs in Dumfries & Galloway. We recruit students whose goal is competitive employment.
Project SEARCH interns will spend their entire day on site at (Dumfries & Galloway Council) total immersion within the workplace of the host employer will aid the teaching and learning process and ensure the achievement of specific employability and transferable work skills necessary for individuals to progress into paid employment in today’s job market.

Interns will participate in three rotations to explore a variety of job and career paths. They will work with a team that includes their family, their instructor and support workers, to create an employment goal. Everyone will support the intern in their successful transition from college to work through continuous feedback and acquisition of skills.
