The PEC Project

Our first project is the project management of a major 10 partner Pre Employability in Clackmannanshire (PEC) project.

The project is supported by Community Renewal Funding and provides a range of supports to over 366 residents to progress towards employment.  The programme supports those who are unemployed and are economically inactive.

PEC will operate from Nov 21 to end Dec 22.  An interim review has been complete for the period to end March 22 and a second interim review for the period to end June 22, both of which are available below along with the Qualitative Evaluation of the project and also available in the resources pages.
