Community Enterprise School Programme – August 2016
Stirling Community Enterprise offers an alternative curriculum option for secondary school pupils who want to learn skills for life and work outside of the school environment. Pupils can come to the centre for 1 or 2 days per week and can come from August – December or can stay until June the following year.
Training in landscaping services and construction are offered along with employability workshops and mentoring to help pupils identify their skills and strengths and support them to make the next step towards their future goals.
Visits to Forth Valley College to understand options available to them and funding that can support them is provided. Trips to visit local employers and hear about the job types and apprenticeships that exist and hear from them about the skills and attitudes that they are looking for.
Teambuilding activities and help with using computers is offered and we work closely with the local Opportunities for All team to ensure that their next steps are being supported.
For more information on the programme starting in August 2016 please contact the office on 01786 472885 – please note that secondary schools must organise places directly with the Community Enterprise.
