As a consortium we are a SQA Learning Centre and as well as deliver a number of SQA courses from level 3 to level 7. 

Courses are individualised as much as possible to provide the best learning outcomes and qualifications for the individual participant.  The main objective of any training we provide is to promote formal and non-formal education as a tool for personal and professional development, and support the integration into society of all those who have experienced social and economic exclusion.

Our history of working with learners whose life is unpredictable and often in cyclical crisis puts us in a strong position to provide support that is not limited to employment.  Our programme of support and learning is holistic and works with the learner to address their current lived experience e.g., homelessness, problematic drug and alcohol misuse, enduring poor mental health, criminality, domestic violence and poverty.  Our model of support covers a spectrum of socio-emotional support as well as focusing on improving the learner’s resilience and coping skills, which can include;


  • Financial and budgeting skills

  • Literacy skills

  • First aid training


Digital skills including:
  • Safe use of social media

Young Person's Guarantee

The consortia participate in the Young Person Guarantee Programme as well as the Modern Apprentice scheme. Our aim is to ensure:


  • A system that provides flexible and person-centred support

  • Learning is straightforward for people to navigate;

  • is better integrated and aligned with other services, in particular, although not exclusively with health provision

  • provides pathways into sustainable and fair work;

  • supports more people – particularly those facing multiple barriers – to move into the right destination, at the right time



The units also have training space for plastering, papering, joinery and roofing. Given the co-location of the project, it can deliver blended activities utilising both premises.
