Renfrewshire Council

School Leavers

We are committed to supporting as many of our school leavers as possible into a positive destination on leaving school. 

This may include further or higher education, training or employment. 

Invest in Renfrewshire has an Employability Adviser who works with vulnerable pupils in their final 3-6 months of school. Referrals are made directly by schools who have identified young people at risk of failing to make a positive transition from school.

Initial support is delivered in school but, where possible, pupils are encouraged to come into our employability hub at the Russell Institute, Paisley.  Support may include CV preparation, interview preparation, job searching and building new skills including CSCS and Customer Service qualifications.

If you'd like to know more, call 0300 300 1180 and speak to an advisor, or you can email us at
