Access to Industry

Access to Industry supports excluded people to move into education and on to employment across the South of Scotland. We do this through the creation and development of new education and training programmes. These are delivered through partnerships with key education and training providers. We also work closely with employers to provide supported work experience placements. Our opportunities are free and benefits not affected.

Our Passport Project supports young people leaving care, prison, substance misuse and homelessness. The work in prisons focuses on young offenders returning from Polmont YOI to Edinburgh and Glasgow and adult offenders in Edinburgh. We provide a unique service of support in the prison and after release back to the community.

Our Transition Project supports recovering substance users in Edinburgh in a mini college setting providing structure and support to help them move on to work, college or training.

Our Course Development Team creates courses with partner colleges and provides ongoing support enabling students to progress towards their career goals.
