  • Logistics
  • Collections
  • Business Admin

What else do I need to know about the Employability Fund?

The personalised training programme will include industry specific knowledge and understanding, work experience, employability skills, core skills and personal development. Every trainee is given an Individual Training Plan which will be agreed and reviewed on a regular basis.

The hours for this program are between 15 – 30 hours per week – Monday to Friday for 9-11 weeks.

The Employability fund consists of two stages – Stage 2 & Stage 3. The Stage you begin with will be assessed on your existing skills and experience.

What do I learn?

The stage you join at determines what you will learn though the course. At Stage 2 you will improve your employability, personal development, and core skills. Your hours will be less than our Stage 3 programme and you will take part in work tasters which will be sourced from your choice of 3 sectors.

During Stage 3 there will be a more intense focus on being prepared for employment, college, or a modern apprenticeship. You will also partake in a regular work placement within a sector of your choice.

In both stages you will be able to gain recognised SQA qualifications and valuable work experience.

Will I receive a formal qualification?

All trainees will undertake a formal SQA qualification e.g., Certificate of Work Readiness, Employability Award, Core Skills as well as undertake soft skills training e.g., Motivation, Assertiveness, Goal Setting, Confidence Building.

Will I get paid?

Depending on your circumstances you could get a training allowance of £55 a week plus travel expenses.

What is in it for me?

You will gain confidence, valuable Work Experience, CV, Job Searching Skills, and a Reference to take to future employers along with an SQA qualification.



Our “Be Involved Together” project is funded by the Scottish Government’s “Investing in Communities Fund” to offer support to clients furthest removed who face multiple barriers.  The aim of this project is to slowly introduce them to re- engage with their local community and reduce existing barriers and isolation.

Who is this project for?

Anyone who is feeling isolated, lacking confidence, long term unemployed, low skilled, mental health, or disability issues.

What will I be doing?

The first stage of the programme will give you the opportunity to gain some experience in a variety of our occupational areas to get a better understanding of various job roles and what you think you many enjoy and have an aptitude for.  It is also an opportunity to develop good work habits like timekeeping, attendance, working in a team as well as gaining confidence from having routine and being “socially included”. 

This can last for up to 12 weeks depending on individual need (we anticipate an average length of 6-8 weeks) and Allows time for one-to-one guidance to identify barriers, job tasters, self-assessment, and group activity.

Each participant will work with our Training Co-ordinator in a customised programme of classroom activity which will include digital skills starting with how to be safe online, accredited personal development qualifications, workplace accredited qualifications and team building/confidence building exercises.

The Programme Co-ordinator will also organise the link to specialist agencies for advice and guidance on issues we are not able to support. Finally, the Programme Co-ordinator will also be responsible for providing an ongoing aftercare support activity after transition to mainstream employability or training opportunities.

Where will it lead to?

On completion, it is hoped that participants will have increased confidence and equipped with skills to progress with their employability journey.  This could include progression to Employability Fund Stage 2, Further Education, Volunteering, Further Training or Employment
