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

The Right Options Women Returners Programme supports women across Scotland, aged 25 or over who have been out of work for 6 months or more? Through our tailored one to one support we can help people restart their employment journey.

Our programme is completely free and operates on a roll on / roll off basis with no fixed start date, meaning we can support people at any time.

We can also support the person within their own community which helps reduce travel as well as provides greater flexibility.

We offer a range of services including:

  • Up-skilling and training to get back into the workplace
  • Interview Skills
  • CV and Cover Letter
  • Job Search
  • Work Tasters / Work Shadowing
  • Emotional Job-Readiness
  • Wellbeing
  • Mentoring and Coaching
  • Volunteering
  • Career Pathways
  • Digital Upskilling
  • Financial Education
  • Virtual Reality Workplace Tours

We also deliver workshops including:

  • Confidence and Motivation
  • Working as Team
  • Workplace Etiquette

To start the process off we invite the person for a Warm Interview which is an opportunity for us to find out a bit more about what they are interested in and what support they might need, as well as an opportunity for them to find out if we are the right choice!
