Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.

About this programme

Fair Start Scotland is the Scottish Government’s employability support service. It is a voluntary service to help unemployed people who want to work, including those with complex issues, find suitable, sustainable, fair work through a person-centred and tailored support approach.

As part of this service, StartScotland through our Delivery Partner – Aberdeen Foyer offer innovative services through our skilled staff to improve lives and help people to find solutions to support their journey into employment.

We tailor our services to meet individual needs and circumstances, with a variety of interventions delivered to meet those needs. We recognise that some people need support and guidance to find the right job, but others can benefit from our wider services around health and wellbeing, budgeting, and skills development.

  • 12-month pre-employment support and 12-month in-work support
  • One-to-one adviser advice and guidance
  • Person-centred support
  • Diagnostic assessments
  • Tailored action plan and tasks to help you meet your goals
