No matter where you are in Scotland, we offer you an opportunity to learn and gain skills through training and learning opportunities abroad.


We want to help you to feel confident, get qualifications and help others from disadvantaged places. We take participants on multiple trips throughout the year, as well as mentors who will be by your side to support you.

We work with partner organisations to organise placements abroad in Ghana and Romania, and dependent on the political situation, Eastern European countries. They all have different activities and tasks and will work on some different skills.

Start a New Day with us

We work in partnership with The Learning Alliance Scotland (LAS), an informal cluster of several third sector interfaces and organisations. They offer training and support into employment for young people and adults in East Dunbartonshire through a person led approach.

LAS don’t just provide SQA recognised training and qualifications, they also offer socio-emotional support that includes digital and literacy skills, interview planning, personal presentation and branding, self-employment support, and job matching.

If you want to learn and work with STAND, this is what your journey will look like.
