Fife Taskforce says it has helped 228 of Tullis Russell’s 446 redundant workers back into employment through education and training.
The Taskforce, which held its sixth meeting earlier this month, says it’s supporting workers across the Fife economy – and not just those affected by Tullis Russell’s closure – having helped 308 out of 560 people who have been recently made redundant to achieve a positive outcome.
So far, the Taskforce claims to have:
Facilitated 305 training requests
Held a Jobs Fair in September which attracted 368 people
Allocated £332,526 training funding
Created a Training Database to support training activity
