Scottish Government and Scottish Local Government Partnership Working Agreement for Employability

Partnership Agreement for Employability

The partnership agreement for employability signed by Scottish Ministers and COSLA leaders in December 2018, signalled a commitment to a collaborative approach between the two levels of Government in Scotland. 

Scottish and Local Government Employability Action Plan 

The Scottish and Local Government Employability Action Plan sets out the framework for how we will facilitate the changes with the right levels of national leadership and local action.

Partnership Joint Updates

Jamie Hepburn MSP, Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills and Councillor Kelly Parry, COSLA Community Wellbeing Spokesperson regularly issue partnership joint updates on the work that Scottish and Local Government and partners have undertaken since the signing of the Partnership Working Agreement.

Employability Partnership Framework

Recognising the degree of variability of Local Employability Partnerships across Scotland a new framework has been developed to provide some consensus around structure and remit of employability partnerships, whilst allowing flexibility reflective of local circumstances.  The framework has been developed following joint discussions with SLAED and SCVO and aims to provide a starting point in developing enhanced local partnership working for both strategic and delivery partners. The framework has also been adopted for use in delivering elements of the Young Person's Guarantee.
