In publishing our Youth Employment Strategy, Developing the Young Workforce, in
December 2014, the Scottish Government committed to annual reporting on progress.
This second annual report largely covers academic year 2015/16 and highlights early
progress made in the first part of academic year 2016/17.
The report sets out the improvements being made across the learning system and with
employers to prepare young people for working lives. It details the way in which, two
years into implementation, expansion and enhancement of the reach, range, quality and
impact of work based and work relevant opportunities for young people continues apace.
