“I believe ‘your past is not your potential’ so no matter what has happened in life so far, if someone is motivated and keen to learn, they can find that perfect placement, get good quality work experience and get on the job ladder.”
The project supports 16-24 year olds living across the area. It is designed to help young people not in employment, education or training – who have so far found it difficult to get their foot in the door of employment.
Liam always wanted to be an engineer and in June began a work placement with Renewable Parts, based in mid Argyll. If all goes well he will be starting college to do an apprenticeship when his placement finishes at the end of the summer.
The project is funded through Skills Development Scotland and the Gannochy Trust.
