No matter where you are in Scotland, you have access to training and learning opportunities abroad that can help you gain skills, boost confidence, and earn qualifications.
Our organization offers multiple trips throughout the year, with mentors available to provide support. We partner with other organizations to offer placements in Ghana, Romania, and potentially Eastern European countries, each with a unique set of activities and tasks that focus on developing various skills.
We offer shorter 3 to 4 day trips for young people, aged 16-30, as well as longer trips of 2 to 3 weeks for anyone over 16.
As part of The Learning Alliance Scotland (LAS), an informal cluster of several third sector interfaces and organisations. We 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, we also offer socio-emotional support that includes digital and literacy skills, interview planning, personal presentation and branding, self-employment support, and job matching.
