Employability training for young people

Employability training for young people

Chloe didn’t enjoy school and her attendance suffered as a result. She heard about our employability training course for young people at our FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland warehouse and signed up.

When asked what she likes about the course, Chloe says “Everything! I like working on the warehouse floor and the coursework is challenging but the trainers help me when I’m stuck. The coursework has helped me realise that I can work independently because I’m interested in what we’re covering, like personal development and learning about my skills and qualities. Working here has helped me improve my confidence.”

Chloe would recommend our Employability Fund course to other young people “because the staff are always very helpful and the work experience has helped me with my confidence to move on to the next stages in life.” She adds “It’s a good laugh and the staff have nice personalities – helpful and caring.”

A big thank you to Chloe for the brilliant feedback and we wish you all the best for your exciting next steps!
