The SCQF Partnership has recently renewed its commitment to the Social Impact Pledge. It is a Scottish Government initiative aimed at increasing the social impact of public sector organisations across Scotland and is hosted by Communities Channel Scotland.
The Social Impact Pledge asks public sector organisations across Scotland to commit to increasing their social impact by making a public promise to changing three aspects of their current operations or policies. The SCQF Partnership Team discussed how they wished continue supporting the Pledge and have agreed to the following three commitments:
• Through our extended SCQF Schools Ambassador programme we will offer the opportunity for work placement or mentoring here in the SCQF Partnership.
• We will offer up our boardroom free to a wider range of small local community groups.
• We will provide an opportunity for a 12 month internship for a graduate.
Organisations such as the National Galleries of Scotland, SCQF Credit Rating Body Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, The Scottish Social Services Council & many Scottish colleges and universities have already signed up to the Pledge.
