Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is Scotland’s national skills body; part of their role is to provide support and guidance to people in Falkirk who would like to find work.
They would like to let local third sector groups and organisations know what they can offer to both their staff and volunteer teams, and to community members who would benefit from SDS support.
If your group or organisation can answer yes to one or more of the questions below, then an SDS Adviser would be happy to help you develop your capacity to tell people you support and engage with about the range of SDS support options available to them:
- Are you working with people who are vulnerable and face barriers in their search for work?
- Do you have staff or volunteers who are often asked for advice on finding work?
- Do you work with people who are looking for more information on support available for Falkirk residents who want to find work?
- Are the people you work with supporting family members or young people looking for work, and don’t know where to go?
SDS Advisers can deliver:
- staff and volunteer team development sessions on signposting to local services, and how to support vulnerable people to find work or training
- small group sessions for individuals on how to find jobs in the Falkirk area
- one to one guidance and employability support for individuals
