Employability Programmes

CPP Employability Pipeline

East Renfrewshire Council on behalf of East Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership (CPP) delivers the CPP Employability Pipeline Programme. This employability pipeline adopts the 5 stage employability model and offers clients an individualised and structured approach to help them gain the skills and qualifications they need to get a job. This programme is part-financed by East Renfrewshire Council and the European Social Fund programme.

Work EastRen Employer Recruitment Incentive

The Work EastRen Regional Employer Incentive Programme is financed by the Scottish Government as part of the No One Left Behind (NOLB) funding stream.  NOLB is for all ages, however it is not for everyone.  It is for those people who without additional support might not make a successful transition into or be able to secure work, further education or training. Everyone participating in No One Left Behind is required to have a Learning Agreement/Action Plan. The individual will participate in a programme of tailored learning and activity based on an assessment of their immediate and future skills needs.

Scope and Aims

This Employer Recruitment Incentive targets support at unemployed East Renfrewshire residents. The goal is to get them into a job or a Modern Apprenticeship. You can get up to £3,000 when your company commits to a new job or new Modern Apprentice (MA). The funding is a contribution towards the additional costs of recruiting a young person during their first 52 weeks of sustainable employment. The incentive is a co-investment in our residents with a view to helping businesses grow. Funding is available on an annual basis to private or third sector organisations. You’ll need to recruit someone who is 16-67 years old and fits one or more of the eligible groups. Only those businesses taking on a person from the East Renfrewshire area are eligible to apply for this grant. These grants are subject to availability and meeting eligibility criteria.

This CPP Employability Pipeline is a five stage process:
