Employability :
Employability is not just about getting a job. It is about having opportunities to reflect on experiences, learn about who we are and what we want. For many it might be about creating a good work/life balance, for some it might be about job satisfaction"

One of FSD’s key strengths is that we are part of a dynamic pioneering charity which provides employability support to people disadvantaged in the labour market by setting up and operating social businesses.

Forth Sector is the biggest provider of supported employment in Edinburgh, supporting people with considerable disabilities in full and part-time employment, and FSD can offer significant support to other organisations based on our experience and our collaboration with Forth Sector’s highly skilled Employability Services team  who provide individuals with the opportunity to develop their employability skills to enable them to gain employment, a place in training, education, or volunteering.

Whether you are concerned with Public Sector service delivery on employment or are an organization supporting the interests of a disadvantaged group, with an interest in providing employability support,  but with no current delivery mechanisms – we can advise you on the best ways to achieve this and support you at every stage of the process.


We offer an extensive range of training options covering work related skills and personal development including:• Employment Preparation
  • Confidence Building and Assertiveness
  • Healthy Work Plan
  • Building Self Esteem
These are just some examples of the training we can offer. We are more than happy to provide a bespoke training programme which we can agree with you depending on your organsiations needs.
