Transition to Trade

WHAT IS TRANSITION TO TRADE?

Transition to Trade (TtT) is an SQA accredited schools programme offering engaging work based learning to young people. Focusing on the transition from education to work, TtT has a strong focus towards the construction industry, the programme will provide the opportunity to learn in a real life work environment, experiencing the realities of working life over a six week period. TtT has two divisions – the Schools Programme and the Bespoke Programme.

SCHOOLS PROGRAMME

Our schools programme is available to pupils across the city and we have partnered with all secondary schools in Dundee. We work with schools to ensure that those who will most benefit from the programme are put forward. There are multiple programmes delivered throughout the year, with a maximum of 12 pupils per cohort.

BESPOKE PROGRAMME

Our Bespoke TtT Programme is geared towards up-skilling young people who have studied the construction industry at college but do not have the hands-on experience they need to enter the workplace. Our hands-on training will give young people the opportunity to take their knowledge and learn how to carry it through into on site projects.

“The Transition to Trade programme seems like an excellent solution to improving opportunities for the city of Dundee by engaging, upskilling and supporting its citizens. Not only supporting its young people but providing opportunities to engage retired tradesmen to promote positive mental health and pass on their industry knowledge.”
