Four Square Learning and Employability

Springboard is an 8-week employability/personal development course.

Service Description

The course covers a variety of topics from CV writing and Interview Skills to Cooking On a Budget as well as a full Mindfulness-Based Resilience course led by qualified practitioners.

Participants have the opportunity to gain multiple recognised qualifications including Emergency First Aid at Work, Elementary Food Hygiene and SQA Core Skills.

Recently added to the Springboard programme is a 2-day residential stay in partnership with Venture Trust. This involves a trip to the Highlands where a variety of personal development topics are incorporated into activities such as hill-walking and abseiling over the course of 3 days.

In addition to the group sessions, participants will receive regular one-to-one support and guidance to create action plans to aid progression.

This course is particularly suitable for individuals who have additional barriers and/or have been out of employment for a lengthy period.

The project is run by staff and volunteers.
