£30 Million Investment in Young Scots

News that Scotland will have a dedicated Youth Employment Minister has been welcomed by Bill. An extra £30million will be invested to help Scotland’s youth back into training, work or education to secure a strong workforce of the future.
Details of the Ministerial post and allocation of the £30m will be outlined before Parliament breaks for recess.
Bill said: “This is a fantastic announcement from the First Minister that will help get our 16-19 year olds back into work, education or training.
“While Scotland’s youth employment rate is higher than the rest of the UK, more needs to be done. This money will really help young Scots – especially during this tough economic time.
“The Minister’s priority will be to promote skills and work for 16 to 24-year-olds and to ensure not a single school leaver becomes just an unemployment statistic.”
