Support in Schools

We have a dedicated Thriving Communities Officer linked to each secondary school to support pupils with transition planning prior to leaving school, this is done in partnership with Education and Skills Development Scotland (SDS). 

Work Out!

The Work Out! programme provides supported vocational placements to pupils in S4 - S6.  Pupils are supported by their Thriving Communities Officer to participate in a one-day per week work experience placement in a range of occupational areas across the council, community planning partners and local businesses.  Pupils taking part in the programme undertake Steps to Work qualification at SCQF Level 3.

The extended work experience programme has been designed to provide a range of experiences for pupils to help develop them holistically in relation to their employability, communication skills and working with others.
