Moray Pathways Employability Training


The UHI Moray employability team has a significant involvement in helping unemployed people to return to the world of work by linking individuals to employers, volunteering opportunities, and further education.

We are part of Moray Pathways which is a single point of contact for individuals, businesses and organisations to find opportunities in education, training or employment. The Moray Pathways partnership consists of several community stakeholders who provide barrier removal support and employability provision to the people of Moray.

"All the help that I have received from this programme has been magic. I did need the help and once I realised this, there was no question in accepting it."

“I found out about the Construction course through Scott my job coach at Forres job centre. I was in two minds about doing it, thinking it might be an information overload. But when I started, I was put at ease by Kristy and Marc and the course had a relaxed atmosphere. Coming out of the course I think I have achieved more confidence and skills that will hopefully get me a job in the future.” - Anonymous


“It was a helpful course, and we also had a inclusive learning environment. Also, the employability team were so ready and happy to get us prepared for employment and also for our future. I would be really glad to recommend this team, the course and employability help to my friends.” - Anonymous

"I certainly feel I have the tools to be employed at this stage, confidence is something I'm sure I will get with time  with going into a job and learning the ropes."

Hear from Mark about his experience >


“Once the first day came from the get-go they explained how and what the course would do for us. When the course got further in, it just kept getting better and better. I came out with everything I expected plus more, so I definitely recommend the course to anyone interested in this line of skills and knowledge.” - Stuart Walmsley


“I have enjoyed this course from start to finish. Met some great people along the way. I’ve done first aid training, COSHH, IOSH and others. It was paced well, and we had great support throughout the course. I’m leaving the course much better off than I was when I started and much more confident looking ahead to future employment.” - Dylan Reid
