Employability fund stage 2

Employability fund stage 2

Pre-employment provision at stage 2 of the Strategic Skills Pipeline (SSP) aims to lay employability foundations, focusing on personal development, essential/core skills and introductory work experience.

What is the programme?

Our programme is delivered over 12 weeks.

This is a generic employability programme aimed at supporting 16-24 year olds who are looking to explore the world of work.

Our flexible "menu" of personal development and employability awards/certification helps address barriers, develop core skills and increase work readiness.

Stage 2 provision has three key elements:

  1. induction and pastoral support
  2. accredited personal development and employability skills at SCQF level 3 (minimum 18 SCQF credits)
  3. work experience

What will you get out of it?

The focus on personal development, essential and core skills and introductory work experience will help you to develop core skills and increase your work readiness.
