Career Kickstart: new programme from YCSA and SDS

Youth Community Support Agency (YCSA) in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) will run workshops over February and March 2020 to help young people with their employment prospects and give information on Modern Apprenticeships.

The workshops will be held every Tuesday from 11th February to 17th March at YCSA's main office. Training will include a range of team-building and drama-based activities to teach interview techniques and develop presentation and communications skills. Workshops are anticipated to run from 12-4pm.

Who is the course for?

  • Young people aged 16 to 24 who want to move into work but need some careers guidance.
  • Young people who would like to get paid for work while training in their chosen career sector.
  • Young people who can work independently on job search and updating CVs with minimal supervision.

YCSA is especially keen to engage with young people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, as people from these demographics are particularly underrepresented in modern apprenticeships. 

If you are working with any young people aged 16 to 24 from this background who you believe would be suitable, please fill in the referral form and send to
