  • Stage 2 - Barrier Removal

To prepare young people for employment by looking at their basic core skills knowledge and qualifications, reviewing their life skill and personal development needs and identifying barriers to learning and employability. Delivery of underpinning knowledge is generic with an emphasis on transferable skills. The young people should be ready to undertake activities at SCQF Level 3. We will also provide them with appropriate work experience placement/s in an area of their choice. Young people will be assessed against their SQA profile and qualifications will be delivered to ensure they have appropriate Core Skills. They will also be supported in their own personal and life skills development whilst addressing barriers to progression. They will also be provided with appropriate work experience with the opportunity to achieve employability and work based qualifications such as Food Hygiene and First Aid.

Young people will have access to the Rathbone One Life modules. There are 8 modules to choose from including One Body, One Learner, One Home, One Child, One Citizen, One Drink, One Love and One Time. One Body, for example, covers healthy eating, exercise, diet and eating disorders as well as the effects of drugs.
