No One Left Behind

Employability support is pivotal in supporting Scotland’s fair and inclusive economic recovery and addressing deep rooted inequalities in the labour market that existed pre-COVID-19, providing support to those most at risk from the adverse economic, health and social impacts.

No One Left Behind is a voluntary service, designed to help people prepare for employment, training, education and/or volunteering. Through No One Left Behind, we will deliver an approach to employability that is flexible, person-centred, and integrated and aligned with other key services including health, justice, housing provision and advice services.

Support is offered to individuals regardless of age or background. This includes people with a disability, people with convictions, care-experienced young people, single parents, minority ethnic people, and people living in the most deprived areas in Scotland. This ensures maximum reach and enhances the experience of users facing structural inequalities in the labour market, supporting them to achieve their career aspirations and enter fair sustainable work.

To take part participants must not be in a job, education or training

They will:

• Receive support from an Employability Key Worker, and work on an individual plan to help the individual to reach their goals.
• The agreement could include activities specifically designed to prepare participants for progression, such as taster sessions at college, time with training providers, mentoring, peer mentoring opportunities and innovative group projects.
