The Routes To Work Story
Where it all started...
In 2002, Routes To Work was established as a Company Limited by Guarantee. The purpose of developing Routes To Work was to bring together a range of disparate employability activity across North Lanarkshire, establishing a powerful new organisation capable of taking a strategic approach to the delivery of employability support across North Lanarkshire.
Since 2002, Routes To Work has achieved a wide range of milestones, including:
Routes To Work works alongside North Lanarkshire Council and other local partners to deliver the Scottish Government's Working for Families Fund.
Routes To Work becomes a wholly owned Arm's Length External Organisation (ALEO) of North Lanarkshire Council.
Routes To Work begins to deliver the next phase of the European Social Fund, and we move into our new headquarters in Bellshill, which remains our headquarters to the present day.
We become an SQA Approved Centre, allowing us to deliver a variety of employability and vocational awards and qualifications.
We secure our first contract under the Employability Fund from Skills Development Scotland, reflecting an increasing coming together of employability and skills.
Routes To Work transforms its 20,000th life, marking the 20,000th person to move into employment with the support of Routes To Work.
