Access and Progression Routes for Employability, Skills Development, and Training Within Social Enterprise.
We are undertaking this short survey for social enterprises to determine previous activity and willingness to support access and progression routes in the future, given the particular challenges in relation to unemployment and youth unemployment that are being projected as a result of Covid-19.
Social Enterprise across Scotland have a proven track record of supporting employability access opportunities, as well as supporting those most distanced from employment (as evidenced by Social Enterprise Census). We are conscious that this has been an area of particular importance in the rural economy where depopulation and demographic change can also be a factor. There is a range of access and progression opportunities supported across the sector, volunteering and employability activities, graduate placements and PhD Internships and we would like to gain a better understanding of the composition of past opportunities and future potential opportunities.
Thank you for assisting with this work.
