ERSA is excited to announce that the sector's second UK Employability Day will takeplaceon 9 June 2017.

Interest has been growing already to see what we can achieve together in 2017. Last year, on the first ever Employability Day, we saw a wide range of activities taking placewith 80 centres taking part, hosting visits fromMPs, Mayors, MEPs, councillors, government officials and influencers. Members also launched reports, posted vlogs, arranged employer interviews and held anEmployability Day elections hustings. The activities generated lots of local media, political blogs, an editorial from the Employment Minister and over 200 users tweeting about the day. Frontline staff saw the benefit too - feedback included :

"This is the first time [we have] had an event since I have been the Business Manager, and I can see the benefits from the feedback given from both referral partners and customers, and more will be scheduled for the future."

We had a celebration with customers – three found jobs before 10am!

This year members and non-members alike will be supported to opentheir doors across the UK to invite in local stakeholders, partners and businesses to show what employment support means at the frontline and the impact it is having in the local area.There are many ways your organisation can get involved, including supporting social media activities, sending case studies to local press and celebrating your staff.

Acting on your feedback, ERSA has fired the starting gun earlier this year to give you more time to think and plan your activities. ERSA will provide a toolkit which includes: promotional materials (logos, banners, posters); template letters and emails of invitation; suggested targets; press releases; messaging; and visit briefings with practical guidance.

We'll keep you updated from ERSA HQ and hope that today you will start thinking about what you will do to celebrate Employability Day 2017.Please email me at sam.windett@ersa.org.uk to let me know how we can help and how you will be involved this year.
