The third session of Cashback Academy, a Dundee and Angus College programme that helps people with multiple barriers gain skills for the workplace, begins soon.
The programme allows offering participants the chance to learn skills in creative media, website design and marketing and will work in conjunction with the Trussell Trust.
The Cashback Academy is funded by the proceeds of crime and those who complete the programme will gain an SQA certificate in digital media editing.
Students on the scheme will create an instructional video to help foodbank users plant vegetables.
Programme creator, Fiona Muhsin, said: “When people are referred to a foodbank they are not offered a choice of groceries, a parcel of food is made up for them and sometime this leads to people finding themselves with ingredients with which they are unfamiliar
“A lack of confidence can mean that they don’t attempt to prepare certain foods.
“The six-week course we have devised culminates with the production of a range of food preparation tutorials available on the internet and mobile devices and also as a printed version that will be added to the food parcel.”
