Employability Conference Brings Partners Together Face to Face to Tackle Key  Challenges                     



Over 100  practitioners from a wide range of services and community organisations and groups joined us on the 22nd June for our 9th annual employability conference and  first face to face event  for 3 years, at the Ingliston Hotel and Country Club.

    Re-connecting our Services and  Communities (No One Left Behind)

This year’s event recognised the need to re-connect local employability services with communities and organisations across Renfrewshire and also to build new connections recognising the need to promote the benefits of work to a wider audience. This includes unemployed residents and also others who have not been considering work due to other priorities such as caring or parenting or because of health issues.

Stories of Success

Getting Help Works Real Stories of Success (003)


Young Persons Guarantee in Renfrewshire  – Progress Report 

This report highlights real progress in supporting young people into positive destinations whether that be a job, apprenticeship, volunteering , training or further and higher education. Our youth employment rate has seen the biggest growth across all 32 local authority areas over the last 10 years and is now the 2nd highest in Scotland.



Useful Information Source

A very helpful source of information is the Employability in Scotland website  where you can be kept up to date with national news and resources and also find links to local partnerships across Scotland. Why not visit now? https://www.employabilityinscotland.com/

You will see links to the new Employability Service Standards and an  Employability Customer Charter which we will be exploring further at  this years Employability Conferences. All local Employability Services should be aiming to meet the standards and our customers should be aware of the charter. We hope to customise the charter for Renfrewshire and will be working with service users and engagement forums like the YPG Youth Panel to do this.

Also available now is a very helpful  new resource , the   Continuous Improvement Toolkit   which will also be discussed at our conferences and likely be a future subject for training and development opportunities for local employability delivery partners.
