Everyone deserves the right to aspire to the very best future, yet only 4.1% of people in Scotland, with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) go on to secure full-time paid employment.

We are proud to support young adults with a learning disability or autism spectrum conditions, or both, to take positive first steps into the world of work.


Location: Ninewells Hospital, Dundee
Starts: 12 August 2024

Delivered in partnership with NHS Tayside and DHSCP, DFN Project Search is a transition-to-work programme committed to transforming the lives of young people with a learning disability or autism spectrum conditions, or both.

This full-time programme provides real-life work experience combined with training in employability and independent-living skills to help young people make successful transitions to productive adult life.

There are no formal entry requirements although learners must have the desire to be in full-time employment.

The application process includes an information session and applicants will be invited to a practical interview assessment day.
