Employability support is currently offered remotely online. We aim to return to face to face provision, either in a group setting or on a 1:1 basis as soon as current guidelines permit. When you contact us the process begins with an informal interview to discuss your individual needs. The provision then offered is based on your specific requirements. Whether you are seeking work or in work and looking for a change in career support is on offer.

Our offer includes:

Literacy and Numeracy – including SQA qualifications in Communication, Numeracy and Maths
