Engage Programme (Tomorrow's People)

6 December 2017

The Engage Programme is an employability programme for 16 - 24 year olds who are not in education, employment or training. We are based at North Edinburgh Arts Centre Pennywell Road. 

Within this 6 week course, the group will:

  • Work on a community challenge such as gardening
  • Do art work or building
  • Attend drugs and alcohol, sexual health and health relationship workshops
  • Visit places of interest
  • Develop group work and team building skills
  • Practice writing and literacy skills
  • Practice interview skills, writing applications and CVs
  • Gain an SQA Qualification
  • Be supported to gain CSCS card
  • Complete the Emergency First Aid at work level 6 certificate and much more.  

All participants are provided with a free Ridacard and up to £30 expenses each week.

Course starts on Monday 15 January.

The course runs Mon - Fri from 9.30am - 1.30pm. We have 12 places, however, these spaces fill up fast and we often have to create a waiting list. 

If you are working with a young person who is interested, please complete the attached referral form and sent it to or post to 'Jackie Massie, North Edinburgh Arts Centre, 15a Pennywell Court, EH4 4TZ'. 

We will contact the young person directly and arrange to meet them for an informal chat to give them more details ahead of the course starting.
