  • Employability on the Agenda (Sept 2014)

    The Stirling Local Employability Partnership (LEP) held its first ever annual conference at Forth Valley College's Stirling Campus on Monday 8 September.
    More than 90 delegates attended the event - including Councillor Johanna Boyd the Leader of Stirling Council and Dr Ken Thomson Principal of Forth Valley College and Chairman of the Stirling LEP. The conference provided partners with the opportunity to share best practice and knowledge and promote how they are helping local people access jobs and training.

  • Stirling Employability Partnership: A Common Approach to Assessment (May 2014)

    Following the successful launch of Stirling Local Employability Partnership in September 2012 local partners identified an assessment tool to be used as the collective mechanism for core skills screening all learners and therefore provide a consistent, shared and transferrable profile for all learners. With Partnership Funding support from Scottish Government, this product was purchased to allow all partners to track learners providing opportunities, resulting in fast decision making and appropriate placement of learners within the skills pipeline and to the most appropriate partner/provider.
