Strategic Activities Update - Livery Skills Initiative

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services providing an update on the Livery Skills Initiative.


The Board noted that a European Social Fund grant had been received to assist with the Connecting Communities project that aimed at helping those over 18 and not currently in education or employment to enter a suitable pathway. This was due to commence in January 2022. Members were asked to signpost the project to any suitable candidates.


The Chair thanked officers for their efforts in getting the project resourced so swiftly.


A Member enquired as to the marketing plan for ensuring this was advertised more widely. It was confirmed that there had been unforeseen delays in beginning their work on marketing due to the requirements of sourcing funding and staffing resource but that it was planned for it to be advertised as widely as possible. One method of achieving this was to be sharing on the Livery Link website.


RESOLVED, that the report be noted.
