Routes to Change
In 2022/23, we were delighted to roll out our new Routes To Change progression tool - designed to help clients find the support they need as efficiently as possible.
The Routes To Change Tool is made up of five stages and mirrors the employability pipeline that the Scottish Government uses. It allows us to effectively progress clients through each stage of their journey.
Every client’s experience with our service should differ and their journey will, too.
Each of the stages below has set indicators which allow the case worker and the client to easily identify what stage they are at and what needs to be done in order to progress them closer to sustainable employment.
