We report on sessions that we ran in order to test key messages around the Scottish Government’s Lifetime Skills offer with equalities
organisations, adding important perspectives to our previous citizens’ panel work ensuring that the recommendations of the citizen’s panel reflected the needs of women, Black and minority ethnic (BME) people, and older people.
Across the equalities groups, there was widespread agreement that the key messages reflected the barriers and experiences of BME people, women and older people. However, participants also highlighted the importance of ensuring that structural barriers which underpin the inequality these groups experience in the labour market are well-reflected within these key messages.
