Youth Employment

The Youth Employment Strategy aims to provide training, education and work opportunities for young people (16-24).

Edinburgh's is a strong and vibrant economy but too often young people are not able to take advantage of the opportunities it provides. The Youth Employment Strategy aims to provide training, education and work opportunities for young people (16-24). Key to this is ensuring that the supply of courses, placements and jobs meets the demands of our population. The Youth Employment Partnership is a group of key organisations (City of Edinburgh Council; Skills Development Scotland; Inspiring Scotland; NHS Lothian; Jobcentre Plus; Edinburgh College and Capital City Partnership) who deliver and commission youth employment support and are committed to ensuring young people reach appropriate and sustainable jobs.

The  Participation Measure is due to replace school leaver destinations as the official data source for the Scottish Government National Performance Indicator, 'Increase the proportion of young people in learning, training or work'.
