The right solution for the problems at FAS is to spend 50 million on a rebranding exercise to give them a new name. This will be an excellent use of taxpayers funds. Well done Minister.

Get rid of the 50 top managers, then you might start to make some headway !.

There is a promotion ongoing in social protection offices of a group called JobFit,they currently have 11 locations throughout the Country aimed at employability training,they are run by a company called TBGLearning which inturn is part of Rehab Group and are funded by the Labour Market Activation Fund of the Department of Education and Skills,as far as i can establish TGBLearning also operate in the UK,,,,,i am wondering is this what the Minister has in store in terms of rebranding,is this set to work in tandem with FAS or to replace them,has anybody got any experience of JobFit or information on their parent Companies(directors names ect)and what was the tendering process requirements for the contract?Seems like an interesting development to me.

I think it's a bit more fundamental than that.

Whole management structures and processes need to be replaced.

Courses need to be provided based on the demand for skillsets, not the availability of course tutors.

Rebranding and replacing a few senior managers isn't going to do anything about those kind of failings.

A waste of money rebranding it.

It will always be known as FAS or FAS NUA.

Same with Anglo - save your money. Bad Anglo Good Anglo :)

It was actually Manpower + AnCo -> FAS wasn't it?
IIRC, AnCo did training and manpower was like a jobcentre.
