16 ‘Inappropriate referral’ is a term often used by providers and Jobcentre Plus to indicate whether Fair Start Scotland would be suitable for a potential participant. Some of the Fair Start Scotland eligibility criteria - e.g. around age and duration of unemployment - are relatively straightforward criteria. For other criteria, both Jobcentre Plus staff and Fair Start Scotland providers need to make an informed decision on the suitability of Fair Start Scotland for a participant – for example whether someone is likely to move into employment within 12 months.
