Thanks to all partners who submitted proposals to the first round of RLEPs Employability Grants Programme.
We have now commissioned 12 providers to deliver 24 programmes to March 23 with 1115 training and development opportunities for Renfrewshire residents to help them progress towards, into and within employment and self employment.
All opportunities will be posted on the Renfrewshire Opportunities portal for the public to access and we have also listed fact sheets for referral staff for those starting now (see our Local Employability Provision page)
If further gaps in provision are identified, RLEP will consider the best process for commissioning (whether grants; local contracts or via the new National Employability Dynamic Purchasing System Framework which is likely to go live late Summer 22 ).
On the latter, many providers have signed up to this and there should still be scope for others to do so. Any further details will be shared here.
