Employability Shared Measurement Framework published
08 April 2022
Today, we have published the first iteration of the Shared Measurement Framework, which was a key commitment made in the 2018 Review of Employability Services. This Framework establishes a shared understanding of how we measure the impact of employability services for the people and areas they aim to support.
By supporting a shift from multiple approaches to measuring success for employability services, to a coherent view of what is working for people at national, local and individual levels, the Framework will ensure accountability through transparency of data and support improvement across Scotland’s employability system. This will build on existing practice that is currently established in each Local Authority area.
Initial implementation will build on existing data collection practice established in each Local Authority area. We will align our statistics reporting, where appropriate, over time to recommendations made by this Framework. They will be particularly important to help us better understand the journeys of those who are furthest away from the labour market and to develop the range of data that we publish.
This is not a final product and more work is required to develop certain areas and themes. However, given the scale of ambition and the desire to develop this in partnership, we are taking an iterative approach which will support continuous improvement. This document represents the first steps towards achieving our shared ambitions in this space.
