Support Scotland's young people and build your business

More than 400 employers have signed up to the Young Person’s Guarantee. This aims to connect every 16 to 24 year old in Scotland with an opportunity. Here are the opportunities you could offer young people:

  • jobs
  • apprenticeships
  • further or higher education
  • training
  • volunteering 

As employers, it'll help you develop a workforce with the right skills and experience. This is also a chance to get young people into your business. 

There's never been a better time to engage with young people and build the future skills for success. The Young Person's Guarantee can help.
