Employability – Robertson Trust

Today I met with the Robertson Trust who are interested in partnering with Fife Council as a result of the work that we have done on employability, particularly in our support of those who face increased challenges in obtaining employment – such as Care Leavers, Young Carers, etc.

Our success is of course down to partnership – in these challenging times no organisation can do it all by themselves –  and I was delighted to be joined at the meeting by Fife College and University of St Andrews.  Both organisations are increasingly doing work in this area and work very closely with our Employability Team at Fife Council and as a result not only are we getting more Fifers into work we are also attracting wider national attention for our partnership approach.

We will now continue our discussions and hopefully going forward this will further enhance the offering that we can make on employability in Fife.
