If you have just left school or are unemployed, it can be a vicious circle. You can’t get a job without skills and experience, and you can’t get the skills and experience without a job. Our Training Initiative offers the opportunity to gain skills, experience and qualifications that will break that circle.
We are an SQA Accredited Centre, giving our trainees the opportunity to gain valuable SQA qualifications. Alongside these qualifications, we can give practical experience and workplace skills. We can offer paid placements for six months; or voluntary for one day a week over three months. Our Trainees benefit from working in a positive and supportive environment alongside our staff and volunteers.
Our brand new course - Jump Start - gives you the opportunity to learn and develop essential employability skills. It's an 8-week course where you gain practical working experience while working towards your SQA Personal Development Qualification. Click here for more information Jump Start

The Training Initiative is partly funded by our PAT business, which provides a training vehicle that allows our Trainees to develop a range of skills. The business is approved by SELECT, Scotland’s Electrical Trade Association and we operate throughout the central belt of Scotland providing PAT testing in churches, charities, social enterprises, businesses and other organisations.
