Employability Service

Pre-Employability support

Our tailored Key Worker approach helps individuals develop skills, boost confidence, and build resilience. We support those overcoming challenges and barriers to employment, education, or training through personalised, strengths-based programs.

These programs offer workshops, learning opportunities, work experience, personal well-being support, and guidance for greater independence and community engagement, all at a pace to suit each person’s circumstances.

“The programme has helped me to know what I would like to do for work and how to get there. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me try new things to give me an idea of what I enjoyed and didn’t enjoy and learn new skills. I have applied for college which I would not have done if I had not done the programme”. VH March 2024

“It took me some time to decide on something that I wanted to do as I did not feel I was able to travel outside of my area, and definitely not on my own. My Key Worker supported me with travel training, and I started to travel on buses with her. She helped me to gain the confidence to travel to Edinburgh where I attended a course which helped me to achieve my CSCS card. This gave me the motivation to think about what else I would like to do, and I applied for college which I am really enjoying.”
