Transition to Trade Schools Programme.

Partnering  with  Dundee  High  Schools,  Alexander’s  Community  Development will deliver a transitional programme for young people. Focusing on the transition from education to work, our Schools Programme will have a strong focus towards the construction industry.

Delivered five 5 times per year, to a maximum of twelve young people per cohort, this Programme will provide the opportunity to learn in a real life work environment, experiencing the realities of working life over a six week period. The 6 weekly programme will cover sessions on mindset and confidence, IOSH, the construction qualification, before moving into a design and build project. More details of the programme delivery can be provided on request.

Following on from the six week programme, the young people will be directed into various progression roles such as future placement, return to education or other partners  that  will support their future career goals.

In partnership with Developing the Young Workforce, YMindset, The Sporting Pursuit, Can I coaching, Discover Opportunities, Breakthrough as well as local construction companies  and  businesses,  this  programme  will  be  delivered  by  qualified trainers, experienced industry leaders and subject experts.

Meeting  the  national  priorities  for  Developing  the  Young  Workforce,  this programme will aim to make a positive difference to all aspects of the lives of its participants, including an improvement to their work ethic, their ability to learn,  their  focus  and  responsibility,  as  well  as  giving  them  a  significantly clearer career path.

Each  Cohort  will  have  a  different  business  feeding  into  the  programme, therefore  enhancing  the  students  learning  experience,  and  will  also  include the opportunity for a site visit. There will be a number of local community focussed organisations who will be the beneficiaries of the design and build project.

Applications from Secondary Schools in the region are invited, in collaboration with the young people who are suitable for this development programme.
