The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities this afternoon said it will continue to press for an improved training for work scheme despite the refusal of Scottish Office minister Allan Stewart to meet with the Convention to discuss the need for quality training opportunities for the unemployed.

At today's convention meeting George Wanless, vice convener of the economic affairs committee, stressed COSLA's commitment to the provision of high quality training.

We want to see more unemployed people retraining to expand their skills and enhance their chances of finding jobs,' said Mr Wanless. 'But Cosla is unable to support the present Training for Work scheme and will continue to encourage local authorities to become involved only if certain quality criteria are met.'
