Renfrewshire Council is committed to supporting as many of our School Leavers as possible into a Positive Destination on leaving school. This may include further or higher education, training or employment.
Invest in Renfrewshire has an Employability Adviser in post who can work with vulnerable pupils in their final 3-6 months of school. Referrals are made directly by schools or the Children’s Services Department who have identified young people at risk of failing to make a positive transition from school.
Initial support is delivered in school but, where possible, pupils are encouraged to come into the Russell Institute. Support may include CV preparation, interview preparation, job searching and building new skills including CSCS, Customer Service qualifications etc.
