Transition in Scotland Progress – Recommendation 3

Effective devolved services

The Scottish Government and its agencies should engage closely with the UK Government once the new Career Transition Partnership (CTP) programme is in place to ensure that devolved services can provide the full range of employability, skills and learning support to Service Leavers in Scotland.

CTP have copies of our recent publication “Welcome to Scotland” which provides a range of information on a variety of topics, including housing, education and employability. The Veterans Employability Strategic Group and the Scottish Government engages regularly with CTP to ensure that those completing their service in Scotland have the best available information.

Implemented, but work should continue

2020 update provided by the Scottish Government:
