Commission for Developing Scotland's Young Workforce Interim Report

Thursday, September 5, 2013

ISBN: 9781782568810

Interim report from the Commission for Developing Scotland's Young Workforce. Contains 12 recommendations following extensive consultations with leading figures in education and business.

Executive Summary

The report focuses on significantly enhancing Scotland's vocational education to achieve the same acclaimed status as that enjoyed by Scotland's higher education sector.

There is also a focus on the importance of business and industry working with schools and colleges as a key factor in ensuring young people are more prepared for employment and better informed in career choice.

In the next phase the Commission will look at how employers can be encouraged to commit to more apprenticeships, develop a comprehensive Invest in Youth policy and provide more employment opportunities for young people leaving education.
