Access To Industry (AI) CashBack Passport provides skills based employability training and one to one holistic support to young people aged 16-25 residing within HMP YOI Polmont and in communities across Scotland. Within HMP YOI Polmont we enable young people to gain knowledge and skills training through our specific employability hubs within construction and hospitality, which will develop their chances of employability, regardless of home geography, length of sentence or nature of offence. Each young person will have an allocated caseworker who will work with them to build a positive relationship and develop an action plan and identify goals that will support progression routes post liberation. We offer an optional programme and one to one support to young people held on remand. Within the community caseworkers will continue to engage with young people, post liberation to access and sustain employment, education and further training.
Our caseworkers collaborate with local authority Community Justice teams to identify young people aged 16-25 who are subject to community based sentences and benefit from the support and employabiltiy opportunities of CashBack Passport.
