Clackmannanshire Council wants every young person who leaves school to be in the best possible position to take up employment, training or further learning.

Schools prepare and support each young person for an ambitious and rewarding career pathway.

Some young people need more support than others. They may face a number of barriers to participating in learning and moving on with their lives. For them, Clackmannanshire has a Jumpstart Employability Programme (JEP).

What is a Jumpstart Employability Programme (JEP)?

The JEP is a programme designed for young people age 16-19 yrs who have decided to leave school but don’t have a job, a place at college or a training course to move onto. 

It could be that they don’t know what they want to do with their life right now, or they may not feel confident enough to get to where they would like to be. 

JEP staff can work with young people and help point them in the right direction, identify the areas they are interested in and support them to gain the skills and qualifications they need to help them get their ideal job or get into a college or training course they always wanted.

What young people can expect when taking part in a Jumpstart Employability Programme.

  • One to one support from a member of our staff team.
  • A supportive nurturing learning environment.
  • Experience of our outdoor learning programme.
  • Opportunity to try new and exciting activities.
  • Support to increase their self confidence & self esteem.
  • Increase their ability to work with others.
  • Learn to solve everyday problems.
  • Gain skills for employment, college, and training.
  • High quality learning experience.

The JEP offers young people a unique opportunity to gain experience for life and skills and qualifications for work, college and training. We have a highly skilled staff team who are dedicated to making their time on the JEP the stepping stone they need to take control of their future.
