Course Info

This is a work-based learning option that offers a hands-on opportunity to try out different job roles and work with a teacher and job coach to develop work skills and apply them in a real work situation.

There are no qualifications attached to Project Search as the focus of the course is to help people into employment.

Calderdale Council are involved in employment opportunities for our students and this leads to roles such as Park Maintenance, Reception Work and study at Calderdale Adult Learning.

All learning takes place at a host employer with a College tutor and a HFT Job Coach supporting the teaching and skills development.


Teaching takes place in small groups in designated classrooms that are equipped with all the necessary resources.

Delivery methods include group works, role play, multi modal blended learning and practical activities in the classroom and out in the community.

At the interview you should provide evidence of previous learning and a copy of your Education, Health and Care Plan.
