Work Activity Agreement
Last updated: 4.33pm, Wednesday 19th August 2015
Building on the success of the Schools Project, which offers pupils a week-long work placement, the Work Activity Agreement was delivered for the first time this year.
This initiative, again a partnership between Hansel Employment Services and East Ayrshire Council, provides school leavers with 10 weeks of work experience, allowing them to develop employability skills to maximise their future employment opportunities.
Six young people in transition from Park School in Kilmarnock took part and all of them thoroughly enjoyed their time at Hansel and are keen to explore future vacancies or volunteering opportunities. Our supported businesses, the Laundry, Lindy’s and Grounds Maintenance and the Baird Centre all benefitted from the hard work and enthusiasm of the young people.
Their achievement was marked with a presentation of certificates on the 5th of August - their final day with us. As well as the certificates they took with them our thanks and best wishes for their future.
