What is shmuTRAIN?

shmuTRAIN have been running employability-based initiatives for over 10 years and we now offer a variety of programmes for 16-25 year-olds. These include delivering Employability Fund programmes as part of the National Employability Pipeline, work with Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils to deliver programmes under the 'No One Left Behind' banner, delivering Foundation Apprenticeships in Creative and Digital Media  and ICT and Software Development for Aberdeenshire Council and working with local schools to develop employability-based programmes for those about to leave.

During the current coronavirus period, staff are continuing to support participants and trainees through the use of online sessions and virtual classrooms, as well as providing general support and advice.
