Employability qualification for Dumfries and Galloway

Pisces Learning Innovations Ltd recently won the contract to develop a ‘Customised Award’ in Employability and to establish the Dumfries and Galloway Council Employment Service as an SQA Centre. Drew Davidson and Martyn Haines of PLI are working with Phil Stewart and Lynn Burgess from the Dumfries and Galloway council to convert their Employability Skills framework into a new qualification for secondary school age learners across the region. The development has the full backing of the regions employers and who are keen to see a high quality programme that boosts the employment prospects of young people made available to all schools .

A tripartite partnership between the Employment Service of the Council as the lead centre, Secondary schools and employers will be at the heart of the delivery team. All types of businesses, rural and urban, SMEs and larger organisations will be involved, ensuring that the opportunities offered to young people across the region are enriched. This initiative has arisen in response to the Wood Commission report (June 2014) that calls for better school to work transitions and a more active involvement by employers with their local schools. The contract will be completed by the end of May 2015 and we are very much looking forward to helping the partnership to achieve its aims.
