INVESTORS IN PEOPLE A formal review of the Investors in People standards took place recently and the Association is delighted to announce that it was accredited with the silver category which is a higher level than previous awarded. The accreditation will stand for a further three year period (2022).
SPONSORSHIP SCHEME FOR APPRENTICESHIPS In conjunction with New College Lanarkshire and Developing the Young Workforce team for Lanarkshire & East Dunbartonshire, we have launched a Sponsorship Scheme to encourage employers within the Lanarkshire area to create job opportunities linked to further education. Our scheme provides funding options for modern apprenticeships and other educational pathways.
PARTNERSHIP WORKING TO REDUCE SOCIAL ISOLATION The Association has agreed to work with Forgewood Housing Co-operative Ltd in a joint venture aimed at reducing social isolation amongst our tenants in Forgewood and surrounding areas. During the year, there will be a schedule of events held at Forgewood Community centre and organised trips to other centres. It is hoped that this project will improve both the physical and mental health of those that participate.
