The Clackmannanshire Local Employability Partnership (LEP) is the strategic employability partnership group for Clackmannanshire.
It was initially established in late 2009 to coordinate and support employability provision across Clackmannanshire. In recent years, the LEP has been focussing its efforts on supporting the implementation of No One Left Behind, the transformation of Scotland’s employability system to design and deliver employability support that allows local flexibility through collective leadership, joint planning and co-commissioning.
A person-centred approach to influence and drive innovative solutions to facilitate the development and delivery of skills and employability services that reflect the current and future needs of individuals and employers in Clackmannanshire.
Our overall aim is to improve the employability of Clackmannanshire residents and, by doing so, reduce unemployment in the area. We are also committed to reducing inequalities that exist between different geographic areas and for different groups who face significant barriers to work.
The LEP will build on the strengths of existing national and local services, to better align funding and to improve the integration of employability services with other support to ensure that services are designed and delivered around the needs and aspirations of those using our services.
The LEP will report to the Community Planning Partnership and the Clackmannanshire Alliance via the new Anchor Partnership and alongside the Clackmannanshire Business Support Partnership.
