Developing the Young Workforce
Developing the Young Workforce Programme is a seven-year national plan to improve the outcomes for all Scotland’s young people.
Developing the Young Workforce - Scotland’s Youth Employment Strategy was published in December 2014 and set out the plans to implement the 39 recommendations as set out by the report Education for All! (June 2014) from the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, chaired by Sir Ian Wood.
The aim of the programme is to create a rich variety of high quality learning opportunities, linked to skills needs and employer demand, taken up by young people who are informed and empowered to make smart decisions about the best route to work for them. The strategy was debated in the Scottish Parliament in 2014; read a copy of the official report of that debate.
