TRANSITION TO TRADE
Our Transition to Trade (TtT) programme, offers engaging work based learning to young people, ultimately providing a realistic and effective career path for young people with an interest in gaining a trade. Focusing on the transition from education to work, TtT has a strong focus towards the construction industry and the real life scenarios. The programme will provide opportunities to learn in a live work environment, giving an insight into what working life is like over an extended period.
Our community programmes focuses on what ACD can do to give back to Dundee. We have two community branches – Food Distribution and Trades for All. Currently, through our Food Distribution programme we distribute over £10,000 worth of food to Dundee’s 25 food banks every week, helping some of Dundee’s most vulnerable families. This programme is delivered in partnership with Faith in Community Dundee and Dundee City Council
Our Trades for All programme works with local retired trades people, we deliver discounted trades work to communities and individuals on a referral basis. The work is carried out in partnership with local community groups and benefits every party involved.
