Skills Pipeline Overview of Services

Moray Skills and Training Pipeline

In line with similar developments across Scotland the Skills Pipeline is a key element in Moray’s employability and employment strategy. The Pipeline provides a route map identifying national and local service provision that is available to support people into employment through a staged process, at the core of which, is the identification of individual need.

The Pipeline is very much a live document , reliant on the participating organisations  to provide updates on a regular basis to ensure information is relevant and accurate.

Whilst the Pipeline will provide staff throughout the employability partnership with information that will be helpful in their day to day contact with clients it is hoped that it will be of direct use to people to obtain a clear picture of the range of services available in Moray
