Employability Plan for Wales
We are developing an employability plan for Wales. It will set out how we will create the conditions to deliver the Taking Wales Forward commitment of supporting people into work and to remain in employment.
The plan will recognise that a holistic approach is required, which seeks to identify and address the needs and barriers each individual faces in gaining, retaining and progressing in employment.
It will set out a framework for action drawing on evidence of what works. We will be working across government and with partners to develop this framework, building on key themes from our engagement to date, which have set the basis for our overarching approach.
In developing the plan it is imperative that we work closely with all key players to ensure opportunities are available for all. Our new approach to employability support will be flexible, nationally commissioned, regionally managed, locally delivered and most importantly centred around the individual.
More information can be found in the Oral Statement on Employability which the Minister for Skills and Science made during Plenary on 15 November.
We would welcome your thoughts on our approach and if you have any comments please send them to Employability@wales.gsi.gov.uk
