Project Search 11.15am -11.45am
Project SEARCH is a successful college / employability programme delivered in partnership by Invest in Renfrewshire and Glasgow Clyde College. The programme supports 12 young people each year aged 17 – 26 who have a learning disability and / or autism. The participants (known as Interns) split their time between attending college classes and work placements within Renfrewshire Council and local businesses.
Many of the Interns aspire to move into job roles and sectors that are not available within a Council setting. To ensure we get this right we would like to create a Business Advisory Committee (BAC) and would be delighted if YOU or your organisation would consider joining.
