Renfrewshire Employability programme

Join us on Tuesday 27 April at 10am for a short briefing on the various employability programmes now available in Renfrewshire; this one hour session is aimed at anyone delivering services for young people, employability practitioners and business leaders. You will hear from Invest and Engage about what’s available, when and for whom. Register here

In Renfrewshire there are 1,305 young people aged 16-24 claiming unemployment benefits; almost double the number from March 2020. Many more are not working but not claiming. In response to the anticipated disproportionate economic impact on young people, both the UK Government and the Scottish Government have announced plans to support youth employment; we’re working hard in Renfrewshire to deliver these, and you can help. The programmes being covered in the session are:

• Kickstart

• Young Person’s Guarantee (#YPGuarantee)

• No One Left Behind

• Youth VIP

• Saltire Awards

You’ll gain a better understanding of each of the current programmes, what they offer and how to get involved. Plus there’ll be an opportunity to ask questions of your own. Please register via Eventbrite and a MS Teams link will be sent to you on Monday 26 April. For further info contact info@engagerenfrewshire.com

We look forward to welcoming you to the session.

Survey

Alcohol Focus Scotland are sharing a short survey to get some feedback from young people about what information they would like to know about alcohol and where they access this information. The responses will help them to create information about alcohol for young people on different digital platforms.

The survey is now live and will remain open until Tuesday 20th April at 5pm. The survey is open to any young person in Scotland aged 13-25 years old. Those who complete the survey also have the chance to enter a prize draw to win a £20 multi store gift card (likely a Love2Shop or equivalent).
