Scottish Employability Forum

21 January 2013 

We are delighted to announce that the first meeting of the reconstituted Scottish Employability Forum (SEF) will take place on 31st January 2013.

The intended aim of the new SEF is to provide a single Forum where all parts of Government can come together, with key stakeholders and delivery bodies, in order to address unemployment within the context of economic recovery. The newly constituted SEF will be jointly chaired by Scottish, UK and local Government.

This commitment was articulated in the refreshed employability framework for Scotland, ' Working for Growth', which was launched on 20th September 2012. Among the range of proposed actions was a commitment to build upon the already strong partnership that exists between DWP, the Scottish Government and our 32 local employability partnerships. 

The remit of the SEF will be consulted on at the first meeting and will be published following the meeting. It is our hope that through the SEF we will collectively be able to ensure a partnership approach which reflects our joint responsibility and commitment for improving employability outcomes for the people of Scotland.
