  • Challenges

  • Timescales for the Redundancy Programme constantly changing

    - BAE SYSTEMS release dates shifting

  • Low utilisation of the Call Centre/help line

  • Extensive active encouragement of ex-employees to use the Centres

    - former employees live throughout the Strathclyde region

  • Motivation of employees to change careers/location

  • Gas services (Transco) training centre moved from Anniesland to Paisley

    - resulted in a funding issue and severe delay in commencing training

      - registered for training,

      - self employment or

      - business start up

    • Within 180 days of being made redundant, 75% of employees with

      one of the above

  • Outcome

    all partners represented
