Pip Critten from Project Search
Pip Critten from Project Search came in to speak to the Year 10 POD group.
Project Search are linked to Plymouth Hospitals Trust and work at Derriford. They work with 18-24 year olds with Learning Needs and their aim is to place them in paid employment withing the NHS. The young people undertake a year long internship working in vital support staff roles such as Porters, Cleaners, Admin Assistants, and Health Care Assistants.
Pip was able to talk to the current Year 10s about previous students from Hillside and Brook Green who have already taken part in the scheme and are now in full-time paid employment. It was great to hear about their success and it helped Year 10 to start to think about building for their own future success
