Aberdeenshire Employability

What can the project offer me or someone I am working with?

 

The project works with young adults aged 16-24 who identify as disabled and/or a carer, who are post-school and may be experiencing multiple barriers to accessing work, learning, education, community engagement and volunteering. Our learners include school leavers. We will support learners to work on their self-defined goals and achieve their potential by developing key core skills and improving qualification profiles. 

Learners will be supported with the following activities:

  • Confidence building
  • Core skills (literacy, numeracy, CV preparation, interview preparation)
  • Digital skills
  • Adult Achievement Awards (SCQF levels 2-6)
  • Other accredited courses

 

Along the way, learners will also improve their transferrable skills for the world of work including regular attendance, commitment, communication, listening skills and team working.

How do I refer myself, a family member or someone I am working with?

 

You can contact Barbara Taylor our local Learning Coordinator on mobile number 07768 917248 or email AberdeenshireEP@lead.org.uk with the contact details of the person you wish to refer.
