SVC Recommendation 9: CTP and SDS build on their existing relationship to avoid ‘falling between the gaps’
The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) and Skills Development Scotland (SDS) should build on their existing relationship with the aim of ensuring Service Leavers and veterans have seamless access to SDS once their period of support from CTP comes to an end. This will be particularly important for Early Service Leavers and others in danger of ‘falling between the gaps’.
Scottish Government update:
The Veterans Employability Strategic Group (VESG) has been very successful in building on this relationship, which can be seen for example in the initial work to establish a pilot in the North East, which is now live with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) sessions delivered to Resettlement Officers/CTP and SDS staff. SDS has also launched a dedicated veterans page on My World of Work, which we had committed to in our response to the recommendations.
