One year on ; this event will offer interested stakeholders the chance to assess the implementation of the Guarantee in relation to its intended outcomes and discuss what more needs to be done. There will be a particular focus on employer engagement; equality and inclusion; and how the opportunities being offered align with Scotlands economic and environmental priorities.
When The Times’ parliamentary journalist Charles Roger Phipps Dod left the iconic British newspaper to launch Dods Parliamentary Companion in 1832, little did he know that almost two centuries later his definitive guide to UK political figures would still be published annually. He certainly would never have imagined that it would form the inspiration for the world’s most comprehensive, reliable and accurate source of political and public sector intelligence and education. Nor that the company would still bear his name, share his values of impartiality and integrity, and be the essential tool for anyone looking to thoroughly understand and engage with government and public affairs in the UK, the European Union, and beyond.
