Congratulations to Adam for completing the Building Brighter Futures course, which is split between our Edinburgh office, Action for Children office and our Move On Wood Recycling workshop!

Building Brighter Futures is an eight week employability programme for young people who are interested in gaining skills and qualifications in a wood workshop. As part of the programme young people gain:

  • SQA core skills
  • SQA employability award
  • Certified manual handling training
  • CSCS card
  • Ongoing employability support
  • One-to-one person centred planning for next steps
  • Practical learning and training in a wood workshop

Adam says he “enjoyed the banter” with staff and other young people, “as well as the scran!” He would recommend the course because “it’s not a typical learning environment because you’re not forced to sit and read.”

The Building Brighter Futures course is suitable for young people who are 16-21 years old and at stages 1 or 2 of the Strategic Skills Pipeline. If you’re interested in the course, or would like to refer a young person, please contact Stephen on 0131 558 3740 or
