The Scottish Government has now launched a new directory to showcase the work of supported businesses in the country. The directory was launched by Health Secretary, Alex Neil, and the Enterprise Minister, Fergus Ewing, at an event where a new company was launched to employ former Remploy workers.

The Government has published an evaluation of the supported internship pilot programme. DfE commissioned CooperGibson Research, in partnership with Disability Rights UK, to undertake an evaluation of the trial to determine: * whether the supported internship trial had been effective in enabling colleges to support young people with different learning difficulties and/or disabilities to progress into sustainable employment
