Young person's guarantee

Young people and employers have been some of the hardest hit by the pandemic.

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.

For employers, there is 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.

 

Employers can get involved with Young Person's Guarantee in up to 5 ways:

  • 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

 

A range of funding and support is available to help employers create opportunities.
