The charity Barnardo’s are again to run their popular employability course, beginning on Monday, January 20. In order to give potential students a taste of what it has to offer, an information session is being held at the Jobcentre on Monday, January 13 from 2pm to 3pm.

Open to those aged 16-24 years old, it is a 13-week programme which aims to not only help students look for work but also consider their own skills, qualities, what they want from a job and how to keep a job once they get one.

The course is an opportunity to gain a Steps to Work-SCQF level 3 qualification plus an eight-week part-time work experience programme.

Students will also hear more about what an employer’s responsibilities are to their employees plus what an employer can reasonably expect from those on their staff.

Anyone interested should speak to their work coach in the first instance to discuss the suitability of the course for them. They can also speak to Helen Johnston or Shaun Sinclair from Barnardo’s on (01343) 545154 or email helen.johnston@barnardos.org.uk or shaun.sinclair@barnardos.org.uk

Those eligible may receive a training allowance while on the programme, depending on their circumstances.
