Employment and skills

Employability has been one of our areas of expertise and interest since we were first set up over 20 years ago, and we continue to be one of the go-to companies for support in this field. We have significant experience of evaluating employability programmes across the public and third sectors, at both local and national level, developing employability strategies for local areas, and undertaking research to inform programme design.

Some of our recent work includes:

  • Scottish Funding Council – jointly commissioned to evaluate Learning to Work 2 (LTW2), a programme which explored different models of student placements in the workplace.
  • Museums Galleries Scotland – asked us to evaluate its flagship internship programme designed to increase diversity and capacity within Scotland’s museums and galleries.
  • Clackmannanshire Local Employability Partnership – jointly appointed to support the LEP to develop a new employability strategy for the area.
