Between 2015—2017, Values into Action (VIA) Scotland worked with West College Scotland to develop modern apprenticeship opportunities for young people within the Learning Support Unit.
As a direct result of the success of that project, West College Scotland received funding from Scottish Government Employability Innovation and Integration Fund to continue that work with Values Into Action Scotland as their partner and so the Work Ready Plus Project was launched in the spring of 2018.
Come and hear about how this pioneering programme can help your business needs while continuing to develop opportunities for job seekers on the autistic spectrum to find a route into employment.
Hear about exciting Modern Apprenticeship work, meet some of last year’s young apprentices and hear testimonials from their employers on the success of Values into Action’s employment initiatives. There will also be a chance to connect with the apprentices from this year’s programme who are seeking placements.
We are looking for as many businesses as possible to attend the event so if you are able to provide support for the programme and attend then please reserve your place here.
Venue: West College Scotland (Waterfront Campus)
Date: Monday 23rd September 2019
