The Renfrewshire Employability Delivery Partners Forum is one of 2 Forums engaging local service providers and other key employability stakeholders in Renfrewshire. The other is the Invest Practitioners Forum which facilitates information sharing and networking between practitioners .
Both forums are linked to the Renfrewshire Local Employability Partnership (RLEP) .
The driver for the establishment of the Renfrewshire Employability Delivery Partners Forum is the Scottish Governments commitment (No One Left Behind) to shifting decision making in relation to local employability service planning, commissioning and delivery to a local level, through enhancing the role of the RLEP. From April 2022, this saw budgets for Employability Fund and Community Jobs Scotland (no longer running) included within the NOLB grant allocation to Renfrewshire Council, albeit the decision making for how these are applied sitting with RLEP.
Renfrewshire Council and RLEP members are all committed to ensuring we have a strong and effective partnership with employability service providers (public; third and private sector) recognising the diverse needs of residents and the many benefits that having a mix of provision can bring.
The forum will facilitate effective communication and joint working in relation to the above ambitions and changes between employability providers active in Renfrewshire or with a desire to be active in the area and the Renfrewshire Local Employability Partnership.
Renfrewshire Delivery Plan
Many thanks to all partners attending RLEPs consultation session on the 11th February, on their Delivery Plan 2022-25.
This is a partnership plan so it is important to us that all stakeholders are involved.
The plan has now been approved and a summary is available on the RLEP page. If you would like to see the full version please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Renfrewshire Employability Conference – Delivery Partner Involvement
It was great to see many delivery partners at our Summer conference in June.
The report and slides are available on the RLEP new page in the pull down menu.
The new Employability Services Flexible Dynamic Purchasing System is scheduled to go live by late Summer.
Our understanding is there will be further information coming out to providers soon . In the meantime this is a webinar produced a while ago.
