Students shine at Bradford NHS graduation ceremony

A scheme to help Bradford students with learning difficulties find employment has celebrated the graduation of eight more interns.

Project SEARCH, which is based at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, helps students develop their skills by finding them work experience placements, as well as through classroom teaching.

This is the fourth year of the programme which equips interns with the skills to compete for jobs. The employment rate for people with learning difficulties generally is less than 6%, but for those who have completed Project SEARCH it is 67%.
