Developing the Young Workforce - Scotland's Youth Employment Strategy which sets out how the Scottish Government will implement the recommendations from the Commission for Developing Scotland's Young Workforce.
Youth work is a core component of Community Learning and Development (CLD) which supports primarily disadvantaged or vulnerable groups and individuals. Engaging with young people within their communities, acknowledging the wider networks of peers, community and culture; it helps young people learn about themselves, others and society through informal educational activities which combine enjoyment, challenge and learning.
The National Performance Indicator on school leaver destinations and our Skills Strategy, Skills for Scotland: A Lifelong Skills Strategy, both reflect the Scottish Government’s wish that all young people stay in learning after 16 since this is the best way of improving their long-term employability.
Every young person who is eligible to leave compulsory education and is making a transition to further learning, training or employment within the Senior Phase should receive an offer of post-16 learning.
Help for young people, practitioners and partners, in every setting, to support learners into positive, sustained destinations.
Meeting the ambitions for the curriculum involves schools and other organisations working in learning partnerships. These partnerships can provide a coherent package of learning and support based around the individual learner and in the context of local needs and circumstances.
