Employability Services - Edinburgh

We provide a wide range of employability services to help people into jobs across Edinburgh 

Our employability approach, Link Academy, delivers these courses from LinkLiving's office at New Mart Road and at The Junction in Leith.

Through the Link Academy, we will help you develop vital skills, knowledge and experience needed to secure an interview, and more importantly, secure a job.

What do we do

We run a number of employability services, volunteer programmes, and SQA courses, all of which can help give you a kick start onto the career ladder.

How we can help you

The following courses are available to people living in the Edinburgh area:

Steps To Resilience

Steps To Resilience is an award-winning personal development programme.  It supports young people who have experienced trauma such as adverse childhood experiences as well as disadvantage and social exclusion. This includes those aged 14-16 who are struggling to attend school and those aged 16-25 years.

The course is run in partnership with an organisation called Total Health. It teaches Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness - useful skills and techniques proven to help with anxiety and self confidence. 

SQA Qualifications

We offer a range of SQA Qualifications in Edinburgh. These courses will help participants learn valuable new skills, improve  self-confidence, and gain knowledge and experience that will stand out to potential employers.
