Support in Schools
We have a dedicated Thriving Communities Officer linked to each secondary school to support young people with transition planning prior to leaving school this is done in partnership with Education and Skills Development Scotland.
The Work Out! programme provides supported vocational placements to selected young people in S4 - S6 from each secondary school in South Ayrshire. Young people 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. Young people taking part in this programme also undertake the accredited Steps to Work qualification at SCQF Level 3.
The extended work experience programme has been designed to provide a range of experiences for the young person and to help develop them holistically in relation to their employability, communication skills and working with others.
