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

Volunteering Matters which recently merged with Project Scotland is offering help and support people to get them into volunteering positions to gain experience, skills and employability. As part of the Young Person’s Guarantee programme, we work with 16-24 year olds to help them with employability through many different avenues; volunteering, working on CVs, interview skills etc.
