New inclusive work scheme

Orchard Hill College is pleased to be part of Project SEARCH, a partnership venture which prepares young people for employment and we were thrilled to get a write up in Hillingdon People all about the course!

The programme provides onsite internship experiences in real work settings so students can gain the skills to achieve paid employment. The college currently has nine interns at the Civic Centre in Uxbridge; the programme is going well and has continued to safely run work rotations despite restrictions being in place.

As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
