The project has been an example of Best Practice in Scotland, the UK and Europe. The project works mostly with employers and partners to ensure the best possible support to help them into work (if eligible), education or further training. Specifically, refugees and migrants through an application have the opportunity for short work experience/work shadowing placements with Scottish companies in the sector that they originally worked in. Usually for about 12 days migrants and refugees through the Bridges Programmes are given a chance to practice their skills in the workplace and get real experience of a UK company. However, the project also offers open digital resources that are available for download aiming to increase migrants’ and refugees’ skills by offering support, advice and guidance in language learning and CV writing.
