All in Glasgow
Training for Work is 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.
Scotland’s biggest third sector consortium, All in Glasgow will help people into work. 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.
