The Young Person’s Guarantee was launched late last year to help support young people through the pandemic recovery. It is a Scottish Government commitment to bring together employers, partners, and young people.

The aim is to connect every 16–24-year-old in Scotland to the opportunity of a job, placement, training, or volunteering with employers committed to the Guarantee.

As the host organisation of Developing the Young Workforce West Highland, we’re delighted that many of our Lochaber Chamber of Commerce members have already signed up to offer their support to the Guarantee, including MOWI and BSW Timber.

The Scheme offers real benefits to employers – it helps to develop a future pipeline of skills and experience, with young people at the heart of the workforce.

Young people bring organisations a wealth of talent, creativity, and enthusiasm, critical now and for future success. It also shows young people considering their work options that companies are committed to developing opportunities for young people within their organisations.

Whether you currently provide opportunities for young people or you would like to start getting involved, the team at DYW West Highland will be more than happy to offer guidance and answer any questions you may have about signing up to the Young Person’s Guarantee Scheme.

It’s easy to sign up and take part – there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach: you can show your support by offering the types of opportunities that work for your business.
