Accenture Helps Skill Building Programs in Scotland

Accenture is creating a fund to support its Skills to Succeed initiatives in Scotland, valued at approximately $120,000.

Funds will be given to three not-for-profit organizations, including The Prince’s Trust, Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust and Oxfam, in order to support initiatives aimed at re-skilling unemployed or socially disadvantaged individuals so they can enter the workforce. A company release says Accenture’s goal is to equip 250,000 people around the world by 2015 with the skills to find a job or build a business.

“Accenture wants to contribute to the regeneration and growth of our communities and the overall economy,” Bill McDonald, managing director of Accenture’s Scotland-based business. “As part of our Skills to Succeed commitment we are focused on investing in and collaborating with charities which share our skill–building goals. Together we can make a difference in people’s lives by equipping them with the skills, confidence and training they need to get a job or build a business.”
