    Fife International Forum’s (FIF) Pre-Academy is an employability programme aiming to empower individuals to develop the foundation skills employers are looking for. The academy operates for six weeks with inputs within a classroom style and focuses on determination, confidence building, resilience, emotional stability, abilities, knowledge, and skills.

    The workshops also focus on what is expected from employees in terms of teamwork, self-management, communication, prioritizing, respect, reliability, and more.

    The participants will attend tailored person-centered activities on the other days. This could include coaching, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes. After six weeks of workshops, the participants will move on to four weeks of work placement and will continue to receive support from FIF staff and volunteers on this journey.
