About this event
The ambition of the Young Person’s Guarantee is that within two years every young person in Scotland aged 16-24 will have the opportunity of a job, apprenticeship, further or higher education, training programme or volunteering.
The impact of the pandemic on employers and young people alongside a challenging labour market means that there has never been a more important time to consider how young talent can benefit your organisation.
This employer conference will help you find out more about the benefits of engaging with young people, support available and how to get involved. Delivered by the Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland (SDS) the webinar includes:
• an overview of the Young Person’s Guarantee, the 5 asks of employers and how to sign up
• employer discussion on how they’ve got involved with the Guarantee and the work they’re doing to bring young people into the sector
• panel discussion with young people from the industry, and Jamie Hepburn the Minister for Higher Education and Further Education, Youth Employment and Training
The event will be hosted by Sandy Begbie, CEO Scottish Financial Enterprise and Chair of the Young Person’s Guarantee.
