Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE)
The Partnership Action for
Continuing Employment (PACE), is the Scottish Government's
initiative for responding to redundancy situations. Through providing skills
development and employability support, PACE aims to minimise the
time individuals affected by redundancy are out of work.
Skills Development Scotland (SDS)
leads on the delivery of PACE support on behalf of the Scottish
Government, together with a number of key partners including the
Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and local authorities,
Resources and materials for
continuing delivery of support
Due to the current restrictions in
force because of the COVID-19 pandemic, some changes have been made
to ensure that PACE support is still available for any individuals
who may require this.
PACE support has moved from being
a face to face service to a telephone and online delivery
The PACE Helpline operated by SDS
has been enhanced to ensure that rather than receiving a call back,
callers are immediately connected to a PACE Adviser, who will
provide advice directly, or will refer on to a PACE Partner, for
example the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service
