You’ll offer an unemployed person 10 weeks of work experience – with free support from a local training provider.
They’ll spend a total of 190 hours in your business. At the end of the placement, you’ll assess their performance as part of a CWR qualification, which is accredited by the SQA.
This means you can give someone with limited work experience the opportunity to flourish in your business, while at the same time tailoring the work placement to your needs.
“I enjoyed being part of CWR and would definitely take part in it again. The whole experience can help people go forward, gain skills, get work experience and help them when applying for other roles. For our organisation, even having helped just one person and being able to see them thrive and grow, makes it worthwhile.”
“David was an enthusiastic addition. We have been delighted with his progress and see no reason why he cannot continue to further his career within the company. We are now using CWR as a route for other potential employees.”
