Scottish Veterans Commissioner Reports

As a part of the Scottish Veterans Commissioners reports, his third report, The Veterans Community - Employability, Skills and  Learning was published on 3 November 2016. 

Following a study of the issues veterans face when seeking to secure civilian employment or enhance their skills and education, he set out a list of recommendations which it is hope will help to improve employment and learning opportunities for Scotland’s veterans community.

The report highlights a number of good examples and offers suggestions for how more employers across the public and private sectors can utilise the talents and skills of those who have served in the Armed Forces, to the benefit of their organisations, Scotland’s communities and the wider economy. 

The Commissioner also recommends that the Scottish Government provides the longer-term strategic leadership to ensure the veterans community, including spouses and partners, maximises its potential and plays its part in filling our skills gaps.
