Edinburgh Council’s Business Growth and Inclusion (BG&I) Team works with internal and external partners across the City to promote inclusive growth. The Council funds third party services to support Edinburgh residents in accessing and progressing along the Scottish Government’s Employability Strategic Skills Pipeline with the goal of securing and sustaining training and employment.
These services are designed to complement national delivery and provide a local response to needs identified. Edinburgh’s Blended Employability Services has been developed to complement national provision and provide a range of localised options for those who require support. This has been split into 4 contract requirements, each with their own targets and focus. It is anticipated that European Social Funds (ESF) or any equivalent replacement funding such as the UK Shared Prosperity Fund will be used to partially fund additional service provision.
