IMPACT AND NEWBATTLE ABBEY COLLEGE SUPPORT PROGRAM
Every Wednesday from 10th January to 20th March (mid-term break 14th February), 10 am - 2pm
Improving Midlothian Parent and Care-givers Time (IMPACT) and Newbattle Abbey College (NAC) – funded by Midlothian Council – are offering a ten-week employability support program. This is for eligible parents and caregivers in Midlothian, aged between 16 to 67 years, who are facing barriers to employment and are currently not in employment and/or education.
The program will include sessions such as self-defense, self-care, and progress to cover more specific employability skills, such as fostering a growth-mindset and providing support with CV writing and job applications to equip participants with essential employability tools, preparing them to pursue future work opportunities with confidence.
Activities will also help participants develop self-assurance, resilience, and problem-solving skills.
The inclusion of the Adult Achievement Award will provide participants with a recognised SCQF credit- rated award to enhance employability prospects whilst acknowledging personal growth and development.
