National Third Sector Employability Forum Update
FVA were pleased to be invited to give a presentation of our Working for Fife report at the recent TSEF held on 28 November. We are clearly on the ball (and trying not to feel too smug) as a similar piece of work has now been commissioned at a national level. The Training and Employment Research Unit at University of Glasgow have won the commission and we will keep you posted on developments there.
There were also presentations on ESF and from the DWP (see separate articles), from Skills Development Scotland on the latest round of Employability Funding and on an interesting experience of using social finance on a Living Balance Project run by the YMCA in Perth.
Copies of all the presentations are attached and a note of the meeting will be uploaded to the employability in Scotland website.
