Renfrewshire Local Employability Partnership (RLEP)
Purpose of Our Partnership:
The Renfrewshire Local Employability Partnership (RLEP) is the strategic employability partnership group for Renfrewshire. Its purpose is to support the implementation of local and national employability policy (currently No One left Behind and Young Persons Guarantee) through collective leadership, joint planning and co-commissioning.
In doing so the partnership, working closely with local delivery partners will make the best use of resources available to deliver effective needs led employability services that help Renfrewshire residents make a successful transition towards employment.
Employability services in Renfrewshire support people into fair, sustainable jobs and contribute to Renfrewshire’s inclusive, sustainable economy with well-being at its core.
Employability provision is responsive and accessible, in particular to those with greatest need and is designed and delivered around the needs and aspirations of those using our services.
The group is made up of representatives from key partners who can contribute to meetings in a strategic capacity in order to shape and influence employability services.
