Employability training

We offer a range of employability courses in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Move On believe that people should be offered support, encouragement and guidance to progress towards employment. We appreciate that this can be a slow and complex process which is different for every individual.

We are committed to supporting people where they need it, when they need it and for as long as they need it.

We are an SQA accredited centre and offer SQA Awards in core skills, employability, personal development and the Certificate of Work Readiness.
