Project SEARCH is an exciting initiative that began in Cincinnati in 1996, which aims to bring significant numbers of people with a learning disability and autism into competitive paid employment.

This 2 day conference will celebrate all that has been achieved in Europe to date and looks to the future. Contributors will discuss the potential of Project SEARCH to make a real difference to the lives of young people with a learning disability or autism and the strategies required to support growth.

A key issue in the conference will be continuous improvement: enabling job coaches, educators, businesses and policy advisors to meet and learn from one another. We are aiming to make this conference informing, challenging and an opportunity to connect with colleagues establishing Project SEARCH across Europe and the US. There will also be a range of inspirational speakers and a variety of workshops to suit all levels of interest and lots of exciting discussion! This conference is packed with information to help both people who are new to this model and those already experienced.

This conference will be of interest to:
•Job Coaches and development staff
•Professionals working in employability
•People with a learning disability, family carers and supporters
•People with autism
•Researchers interested in the field of learning disability and autism
•Agencies interested in diversity in employment
•HR Managers
•Careers Advisors
•Social enterprise practitioners
