Supported Learning Courses

Project SEARCH is an international supported internship programme, for young adults with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism, which supports their transition from education to full time, paid employment. A yearly cohort of up to twelve interns have three different extended work rotations at Hounslow House, taught by a West Thames College teacher and supported by a full-time job coach employed by Kaleidoscope Sabre.

  • About the Course

    The programme provides on-site practical work training at Hounslow House, where interns will be based for 5 days a week. In addition, interns will work towards a City and Guilds level 1 qualification in Employability Skills which take place on the on-site training room.

    Example job rotations: Security, Post Room, Café, Reception, Office Administration, IT, Library and Leisure.

    You will study three separate units:

    • Effective Communication
    • Working as Part of a Team
    • Preparing for Work

    Through training and direct work experience, young adults will develop employability skills, self-confidence, job specific skills and Maths, English and ICT skills whilst working alongside employees in a real employment setting.
