Supporting Employability: A Co-ordinated Approach to Employer Engagement
Employer Engagement is a key priority across all areas in
Scotland, in a variety of different contexts, and encompasses
issues such as how we tailor the 'offer' to and the 'ask' of
employers both nationally and locally.
The need to develop a more effective and integrated approach to
employer engagement nationally and locally becomes even more of a
necessity as we move into a very tight fiscal environment.
In June 2010 The Scottish Government arranged
an event, chaired by Professor Alan McGregor (Director of Training
and Employment Research Unit (TERU)/Professor of Economic
Development University of Glasgow), to initiate the discussion
and begin the process of effectively linking-up local delivery.
