We are always in need of volunteers to help us in our Employability Project, which aims to boost the confidence of our students and to allow them to develop a satisfying role in society.

Employability skills

Green Routes is a charity offering teaching of employability skills and confidence building support for people with learning needs, in a positive SAM 1241 weblearning environment. Our training is focused on horticulture, and is tailored to individual needs, and aims to improve their opportunities for employment and integration into society.

Our activities develop self confidence and employability skills, such as communication, time management, self discipline, problem solving.

Students learn about the value of sustainable and organic cultivation methods as a key part of their horticultural training. We have helped deliver rural and environmental studies courses to students from neighbouring high schools.

The local community plays an important role in the work of Green Routes. There are frequent opportunities for younger children to visit and take part in activities at the garden. Much of our garden produce is sold through local shops, businesses and events and some of our students have gained valuable work experience in local enterprises.

Routes to work

Through our Routes to Work placement project, many of our students benefit from work placements in local organisations, including Waitrose, the MacRobert Centre, Start Up Stirling, West Moss-side organic farm, Altskeith House, Gartmore House, Ben View Nursery, the Co-operative, Greenyards Garden Centre, Aberfoyle Golf Club, the community-owned Gartmore Shop and Black Bull Hub and Pub in Gartmore, Castle Rednock Trekking Centre and Ledard Farm.
