Employability Partners

UK Employability Day takes place on 29 June 2018

Time to start your preparations and planning!

ERSA is excited to announce that this year's UK Employability Day will take place on 29 June 2018.

Following feedback from last year, there is even more time to prepare - with over five months to get ready, we're looking forward to making this the best Employability Day yet!

Last year saw over 200 centres taking part, with activities including jobs fairs and stakeholder visits, conferences, report launches and employability day tea parties. Some organisations welcomed hundreds of visitors and many signed up more jobseekers as a result. Notable visitors to the frontline included Home Secretary Amber Rudd MP, the Scottish Minister for Employability and Training, numerous MPs and councillors, Mayors and over 20 government officials.

Activities generated lots of local media coverage (including broadcast) and #Empday17 trended all day with over 600 unique tweets, video blogs from MPs and members creating their own Snapchat filters. Overall, Employability Day enabled organisations to share the sector's fantastic work in a variety of ways.

In 2018, ERSA members and non-members across the UK will be supported to open their doors 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 - contact us for ideas and inspiration!

ERSA will introduce an Employability Day Buddy system and 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 and want to know what you will be doing to celebrate Employability Day 2018. Please email to let us know how we can help and how you will be involved this year.
