Wiltshire Council, on behalf of partners in the County with responsibility for employment and skills, commissioned EMB Consulting to:
Develop a Work and Skills Plan to specifically tackle issues of rising worklessness within the area. This work included:
- Significant desk research into government and county policy, employment and skill needs for the area and information on current services and projects
- Facilitated workshops with partners to help develop a vision, strategic objectives, priorities and actions; and
- The development of a comprehensive Work and Skills Plan including a detailed action plan.
Facilitate the development of a full Employment and Skills Plan – As a follow up to the Work and Skills Plan, EMB Consulting was asked to facilitate a series of workshops to help partners in developing a comprehensive Employment and Skills Plan for the area, to serve the needs of employers, adults and young people.
"The workshops were a very efficient and practical way to ensure key stakeholders had the opportunity to inform, shape, and influence the
strategy and improve partnership working further, with a common approach to a shared issue.
Liz's professionalism and extensive knowledge of the employment and skills agenda, her understanding of worklessness issues, and the local
context here in Wiltshire is first rate. Of note, is her dynamism.
On both counts the amount of ground covered in a short space of time is astounding"
