Info Box

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

Barnardo’s Fit For Work is a programme funded by CashBack For Communities and is aimed for young people aged 15-24 who are:

  • Living in areas of deprivation
  • Unemployed, not in education or training
  • At risk of being involved in antisocial
    behaviour, offending/re-offending

Fit for Work supports young people to take their first steps towards employability. It is a very flexible programme that aims to support young people to work in a group, develop their skills and gain better routines.  These sessions are delivered from our premises twice per week for 2 hour sessions. We are also offering 1:1 support prior to starting on Fit for Work to encourage engagement and provide additional support where required. Young people may also be entitled to £20 per week if they participate in the course.

The 8 week interactive employability programme will consist of:

  • Budgeting skills
  • Health and Wellbeing activities such as Foot Golf, Health Walks, Transition Extreme etc.
  • Volunteering
  • Qualification
  • Employability
