No-one Left Behind: Part 3 - Business 

No-one Left Behind is the Scottish Government’s policy direction to deliver more effective and joined-up employability support across Scotland. Following a stakeholder review, a Joint Delivery Plan was launched by national and local government in November. 

In accord with this, EDAS and SLAED are co-producing a No-one Left Behind series of three sessions focussed on People, Communities and Business. Previous session coverage can be found here

The final session, on 30th March, will consider how Scotland’s business support network collectively supports business going forward, in the wake of the pandemic and EU exit.

Chaired by Liz McEntee, EDAS Chair, we will be joined by SLAED Chair, Ishabel Bremner,  Chris Brodie, Head of Skills Planning and Sector Development, Skills Development Scotland and Susan Love, Head of External Affairs, FSB Scotland.
