Glasgow Fort is launching a free employment training course for the community, offering participants the chance to refresh and develop the skills needed to find work.
The Bright Lights Build Your Skills with Glasgow Fort virtual employment programme will start on 7 June for two weeks and is aimed at anyone who is currently unemployed, at risk of redundancy or on furlough with an uncertain future, either as a result of the pandemic or due to other circumstances.
The training will be delivered via a virtual classroom and will include sessions to help recruits develop their CV, build interview and employability skills, prepare for new recruitment practices, and improve their digital communication skills.
The programme will also provide job application support, the chance to hear from a variety of employers about their recruitment processes, information on local employment opportunities, and access to a personal mentor.
Those who complete the course will also receive ongoing support for up to six months, tailored to their specific needs and ambitions.
The initiative is being funded by Glasgow Fort owners, British Land, as part of its ongoing commitment to the local community.
Phil Goodman, centre director at Glasgow Fort, said: “Supporting our local community is one of our top priorities at Glasgow Fort, and we are very proud to be able to offer this programme.
“It will offer a fantastic opportunity for people to develop their skills, boost their application prospects and explore new career opportunities. I’d encourage anyone in Glasgow who has been furloughed, made redundant, or who is looking for employment to get in touch and find out how the programme can benefit them.”
