Employability training course in Glasgow

We’re proud to be part of an ambitious new employability training programme, All in Glasgow.

All in Glasgow brings together 17 charity partners to provide specialist support to 1,500 people facing challenging times to gain qualifications and opportunities that lead to long-term employment.

What is All in Glasgow?

Scotland’s biggest third sector consortium, All in Glasgow will help people into work through the support of 17 charity partners. The service includes three streams:

  • Training for Work is for people looking for work and can also support those in work who are at risk of redundancy. You may be disengaged from education or mainstream services, have a disability or mental health condition, have caring responsibilities, or be impacted by poverty. This is the stream that Move On will help to deliver.
  • Progress for Parents is a service specifically designed to help and support disabled parents who have children under 16 and who are not currently engaged with employment services. Find out more.
  • Supported Employment is delivered exclusively by Enable Works, who work with employers to gain a better understanding of issues affecting disabled people, building their capacity to recruit from all sections of the community. Find out more.

The multi-charity partnership will ensure that those accessing any service can be signposted to another, more appropriate avenue without having to start the application process again or repeat a difficult-to-tell background story.

How Move On is involved

As part of All in Glasgow, we will be delivering Training for Work, an exciting new employability service.

Based at FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland, a 12,000 square foot operational warehouse in Scotstoun, Training for Work offers participants the chance to be part of a supportive team of staff and volunteers in a live working environment.

Our skilled and experienced employability team will deliver the service through a combination of one-to-one and group work.

The topics covered will include workplace expectations, dealing with difficult situations, and interview techniques. Support will be put in place to address the individual barriers to employment and create bespoke training plans.

Participants will have the opportunity to achieve a range of SQA and other accredited qualifications, as well as in-work skills and knowledge of the warehouse sector through practical work experience.

The service is suitable for people living in Glasgow who are aged 16+ and would like to build their confidence and gain work experience.

What All in Glasgow will achieve

It is hoped that the programme will result in:

  • An improvement in employment rates in Glasgow
  • An increase in job retention rates in the city
  • A better-informed workforce who, by being more aware of welfare rights, can ensure they are financially better-off
  • Employers promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and avoiding zero-hours contracts
