Could you help provide opportunities for Scotland’s young people?

As part of Scotland’s response to COVID-19 economic recovery, Young Person’s Guarantee was launched in November 2020. It aims to give all young people, aged 16-24 in Scotland, the chance to succeed through the opportunity of a job, apprenticeship, education, training or volunteering.

And for businesses, it offers help to develop a future pipeline of skills and experience, with young people at the heart of the workforce. Young people bring organisations a wealth of talent, creativity, and enthusiasm, critical now and for future success. Businesses do not need to be recruiting to get involved.

Businesses of all sizes and across all sectors can get involved with Young Person’s Guarantee in up to 5 ways. You only need to get involved in a min of 1 of the below activities:

  • Prepare young people for the world of work
  • Create opportunities for young people who face the greatest barriers to work
  • Invest in a skilled workforce through apprenticeships, training and upskilling opportunities
  • Create jobs and opportunities suitable for 16-24 year olds
  • Ensure a work environment which supports all young people and provides fair work

Whether you currently provide opportunities for young people or you’d like to start getting involved, there’s options available.
