Posted on 17th December 2012: 4:36 am

SkillForce is delighted that Standard Life, a long-term savings and investment provider head-quartered in Edinburgh, is supporting seven Edinburgh schools over the next two academic years.

“Youth unemployment is one of the biggest social challenges the UK faces. Standard Life is therefore delighted to be supporting Skillforce’s programme, helping young people improve their self-esteem, social skills and increase their chances of employment. Business has a key role to play in supporting these initiatives and we are glad our donation will give more young people access to Skillforce’s instructors to give them expert guidance on key life skills.”
