Family Firm

VERG Ltd have been running the Family Firm programme in conjunction with East Renfrewshire Council since 2014.  East Renfrewshire Council approached VERG Ltd and asked us to create an employment support programme for young people who are looked after or involved with Social Work authorities.

Family Firm is a tailored pre-employment programme which has been designed to help these young people transition into the world of work and includes the following elements:

  • Barrier removal
  • Employer expectation training
  • Development of Job Search skills
  • Using tools such as Thomas International Profiles
  • Sourcing of sector specific qualifications on an individual basis

VERG Ltd also work on a one-to-one basis with the young people on the Family Firm programme to help source suitable employment, placement or training opportunities.  The programme also involves an after care service to support sustainability of any outcomes.
