Symbiosis Logo

WorkingRite has been delivering a work-based mentored training programme for hard-to-reach young people across Scotland for nearly two decades. Their model is built on creating a one-to-one mentoring relationship between a trainee and an adult working mentor, selected from within the workforce of a local business – any kind of business.

They also work throughout schools in Scotland, offering support to selected young people as they transition from the school environment.

WorkingRite work with young people from challenging situations, who have not engaged with school. They currently have a staff of 13 project co-ordinators, each of whom supports between 20 and 30 young people a year into these mentored work placements and then on to jobs and apprenticeships. That’s around 300 a year.

At the same time the complexity of the barriers faced by our young people has also increased meaning the kind of support the business gives is hugely in demand. WorkingRite expect to grow the number of young people they support year on year going forward.
