Event description

Description

Introduction:

As a diversion from our standard format, BAVS will be hosting an Action Research event for practitioners, staff and volunteers who in various ways are supporting people to make progress in their lives or careers.
This event will bring as many people together across the entire spectrum of therapeutic, pastoral, practical and career development support and explore the work that we are all doing.

Rationale:

BAVS in partnership with BHA and Connect Youth Project are intent on developing an employability service which meets the needs of our Berwickshire community. Although we recognise that many services don’t necessarily identify as ‘employability’, they may still be supporting personal development and promoting wellbeing or for example helping people move from crisis to stability. Others may be involved in harder edged career development including career guidance, job search, vocational training and further education or in-work mentoring.

Essentially, we want to establish:

  1. What is being delivered in Berwickshire - where and with who?
  2. What are the outcomes and impacts of the good work which already happening?
    It is our aspiration to develop an employability service which adds value to the area and in no way duplicates any other service being provided. We know anecdotally that many professionals and agencies suggest that there are very limited opportunities to support clients progression.
  3. What are the gaps in services?
  4. Encourage a more joined up approach across our challenging geography to make sure we can best meet the needs of the people we work with.
This will be an interactive mini-conference event which will provide opportunity for supportive professional development for all those taking part.

Please pass this around the your networks as we want to get the best possible area intelligence and ultimately build a service which compliments the work of others.
Bacon rolls, tea/coffee and biscuits will be the order of the day!
