Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Falkirk Football Community Foundation launch the Parents into Work Programme
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust, in partnership with Falkirk Football Community Foundation, has created The Parents into Work Programme to help parents across the West Fife villages into work.
The Parents into Work Programme aims to meet the needs of people living in former mining communities by creating life-changing opportunities by motivating, educating and inspiring others.
The new programme will assist parents facing barriers getting into work to improve their job prospects and employability. This innovative and unique programme offers classroom teaching and practical learning and development within the cradle of one of Scotland’s professional football clubs.
The initiative is from CRT, which supports local initiatives to improve health and employment prospects for residents in the West Fife villages, and Falkirk Football Community Foundation, a charity that uses the power of football to reach those in the greatest need.
The Parents into work programme runs for 10 weeks starting on the 17th of February. Participants will gain (SQA) qualifications in Employability Skills, alongside training in CV building and interview techniques/preparation. Participants will improve self-esteem, confidence and learn new skills. In addition, one-to-one aftercare support for a minimum of eight weeks after the programme and telephone support is available if required.
An open day will be held at the Coalfields Training & Enterprise Hub in Kincardine at 10am on Monday 10 February for further information. Interested participants should contact David Stewart on 01324 624 121 (option three) or firstname.lastname@example.org
Nicky Wilson, a Scottish CRT trustee, said: “We’re delighted to team up with Falkirk Football Community Foundation to launch the Parents into work Programme that will support parents back into work by helping them gain a range of qualifications and build their confidence.”
