Employability Fund Courses

Are you 16 plus, not in employment or education, and living in Glasgow? Are you looking for a course which will help you secure your dream job? Employability Fund courses on offer at Glasgow Clyde College are a fantastic way of establishing yourself with a foundation of new skills and knowledge without having to commit to a whole year of attending college. The courses involve between 16-20 weeks at college over 3 days each week.

As well as learning new skills, these courses have an essential work experience element which gets you the opportunity to try out your new skills, see what your chosen occupational area is like "in the real world" and also showcase yourself to potential employers. If you are looking for a shorter course, specifically aimed to getting you in to employment, then Employability Funded courses might be exactly what you need!

Employability Fund courses are funded by Skills Development Scotland and aim to provide vocational training and employment opportunities within the local labour market.

Courses to be announced in the summer.
