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.

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.
