However, part-time positions of 16 hours a week will be considered.
Opportunities will be for 6 months paid at least at National Minimum Wage and employers are encouraged to promote the National Living Wage. SCVO will promote Modern Apprenticeships to employers and aim to have 20% of the young people progress to an MA.
SCVO will work with voluntary organisations and charities to identify eligible people and a referral form will need to be submitted. SCVO will work with other eligible partners in promoting the opportunities. This will include Fife Voluntary Action, DWP and SDS and Fife Council.
