During 2016-17 The Ridge designed and delivered training workshops on behalf of Developing the Young Workforce, for employers across Edinburgh, Mid and East Lothian, focusing on provision of high quality work placements.

This was part of a Scottish Government push to improve the standard and credibility of work placements for young people, highlighting the potential benefits to both employers and trainees of a properly planned and structured experience.

These workshops were very popular and successful, with the materials created adopted by a wide range of employers as the basis of their ongoing placement programmes.

The materials can be found here (see downloads) and are available in an editable formats (.pdf) from Developing the Young Workforce.
