Employability

Triage started delivering employability programmes in 1999.

Our first contract was New Deal, which we delivered across Forth Valley and then Fife. In 2007, we began delivering Pathways to Work in Forth Valley, Fife and Tayside. Pathways to Work was the first major programme to help people with health conditions move into employment.

In 2011, the commencement of the Work Programme saw Triage move into North East England, delivering employment support across Tees Valley.

Today, we deliver employability programmes across Scotland and the North East on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions, the Scottish Government and a number of Scottish Local Employability Partnerships.  

Our programmes are delivered by a team of experienced Employment Advisers who provide tailored, one-to-one advice to help people from a wide range of backgrounds move into work. As well as practical help like CV building, interview skills and job searching, our services also extend to helping people find the confidence to look for work, then supporting them once they move into employment - ultimately helping them to progress towards their full potential in the labour market.

No One Left Behind

No One Left Behind (NOLB) is the Scottish Government’s policy framework and approach to tackling employment issues across the nation. It aims to ensure those who experience complex and multiple barriers to moving into work are not ‘left behind’. 

Services are procured by 32 Local Employability Partnerships and align to the various stages of the Scottish Employability Pipeline.

We deliver NOLB on behalf of the following commissioners:

  • Edinburgh and South East City Region
  • North Lanarkshire Council*

*NOLB is known as Next Steps here

We also deliver Employability Skills for Falkirk Council covering topics such as customer service, productivity and problem solving.
