We equip people to be ‘job ready’, able to access mainstream support, open to further learning and more able to sustain employment. Our employability programme supports participants to build aspiration, motivation and self-confidence while developing key employability skills. The programme is for young people aged 16-24 who are not in work, education or training, facing long term unemployment and disadvantage or potentially at risk of (re-)offending or anti-social behaviour.   

Through our employability programme we support young people to work on core employability skills such as CV writing, interview techniques, IT skills, and they gain accredited SQA and other qualifications.

If you have a question about Change Cycle or want to find out more about being referred to the programme please contact the Employability team at changecycleinfo@venturetrust.org.uk or call 0131 228 7700.
