Across Scotland, our local Project Co-ordinators individually match a young person to a small business in their local community, where they learn valuable skills ‘on-the-job’, where it counts. Our ‘trainees’ are with their work placement provider for up to six months during which they are guided by an older mentor in the business and supported by our Project Co-ordinator. If they are eligible, they also receive a weekly training allowance and we cover their travel expenses.
Our programme bridges the gap between school and work. It gives young people essential work experience, provides good role models, builds their confidence and offers them a quality vocational alternative to academic learning.

We will continue to support young people and the local businesses who provide mentored work placements – within the government guidelines that have been put in place. Our training and induction sessions will be delivered online in preparation for work placements being able to restart – at which point we will risk assess all work, to protect young people, the local businesses, families and communities where we work.
