About this programme



Make a Referral

In partnership with Barrhead Housing Association we are running a 12-week creative employability programme for parents who live in East Renfrewshire.

East Renfrewshire based parents can attend this new programme which will run on Thursdays and Fridays, from 9.30am-2.30pm; to gain employability skills and SQA qualifications, and receive 1-1 support towards future employment, plus there will be lots of creative arts activities to enjoy.  

Participants can receive up to £30 per week as a training allowance for attending the programme, plus travel costs can also be reimbursed. 

We aim to help each participant to build confidence and develop employability skills to ensure they go on to a positive destination once they complete the programme. This could be further training, education or employment. 

This programme is open to the following people: 

Parents who live in East Renfrewshire (can be any age, up to 67 years) who are experiencing barriers to employment 

Lone Parents 

Parents with a disability or who have children with a disability 

Parents with 3 or more children 

Parents from a minority ethnic background 

Families with a parent under 25 years old 

Other low-income parents e.g. kinship carers

Here's something you should know

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.
