Since 2017/18 Supported Enterprise Service have been supporting the 5th and 6th year students of North Lanarkshire Council’s ASN Schools who are looking for employment and are preparing to leave school each Summer.
An assigned job coach works with each pupil to help them begin their employability journey. The service is adapted to suit the personalised needs of each individual but will include completing a vocational profile, job tasters, employer visits and support with CVs, applications for interviews.
David (Pictured, right) was a 5th year pupil at Brannock High School in Motherwell in 2020. David was referred to our service to support him to find employment as he wasn’t sure he wanted to continue into 6th year. David was allocated a job coach who completed a vocational profile with him, supporting him to build his confidence and a CV he was proud of. In December 2020, David was offered a Modern Apprenticeship in Business & Admin with Routes to Work and started his job on 5th January 2021.
“It was brilliant to have the support of job coach and it has been life changing finding a job that I love”.
