Developing Young Workforce

The commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce was set up in Jan 2013 to consider:

  • How a high quality intermediate vocational education and training system works with the current Scottish higher education system to enhance economic growth with a skilled workforce.
  • How to achieve better connectivity and cooperation between education and the world of work.
  • How to achieve real partnerships between employers and education.

The commission published its final report:
Education Working For All, in June 2014.

Developing the Young Workforce – Scotland’s Youth Employment Strategy was published in Dec 2014.

The strategy and the implementation plan is the Government’s response to Education Working for All and sets out milestones over a seven-year period with the aim of improving outcomes for all young people by 2021.
