Employability Learning Network

Developed by the National Delivery Group in 2009, the Employability Learning Network aims to support Local Employability Partnerships and wider stakeholders to improve the way that employability is delivered throughout Scotland.

The Network provides a structure for you to interact with others and share common concerns, as well as sharing examples of good practice, deepening your knowledge and expertise in the process.

The Network aims to provide practical help and support to organisations and individuals working locally throughout Scotland, and supports activity that focuses on:

  • Supporting local learning and development with employability partners through partnership development and learning. 
  • Capacity building around technical and project delivery techniques such as management information systems and client assessment, as well as research and evaluation activity. 
  • Developing and promoting a clear understanding of the factors which influence successful and sustained employment and progressions. 
  • Developing new support tools where appropriate, to improve performance or overcome barriers. 
  • Providing a forum to collectively identify and share good practice. 
  • Supporting stakeholders to gather their learning and practice into user friendly case studies for the Learning Network.
  • Promoting networking and joint working across local employability partnerships in Scotland.

The work of the Employability Learning Network is coordinated by The Scottish Governments Employability Team, and is primarily delivered via the Employability in Scotland website and the monthly employability e-bulletin.

This Employability in Scotland website provides a practical resource for all those involved in funding, planning and delivering employability services in Scotland. It has links to a number of useful resources, such as service guides, case studies, news items, events and workshops and policy and research.

The Network also issues a monthly employability e-bulletin which is distributed to a large network of subscribers from public, private and third sector backgrounds. At Autumn 2013 the e-bulletin had over 2000 subscribers, with registrations growing each month.
