International Perspectives

Throughout the world, a wide range of agencies - from governments to private companies to charitable organisations - are continually looking to enhance their support for people out of work.  As we also seek to enhance our employability services, it is important that we keep an eye on these developments.  Equally, the Scottish Government is keen to share the learning from our own efforts and successes with international colleagues.

This section aims:

  • to provide a gateway to information on Scotland's engagement with other countries on the theme of employability;
  • to highlight international research and reports on helping people into work; and
  • to promote interaction and the sharing of learning on employability between Scotland and other countries.

We look to local, national, and indeed international partners to help us develop and populate this section of the website.  In the meantime, the following reports are
