Minister for youth employment calls for the use of European Youth Guarantee

The Scottish Minister for Youth Employment calls on cross party support for the implementation of the European Union’s Youth Guarantee, to stimulate jobs and supply training opportunities.

In a letter to the UK government, Minster for Youth Employment Angela Constance has called for an independent Scotland to have the full powers to fully integrate employment and skills services.

Speaking ahead of the Glasgow Caledonian University Referendum Debate, she has reiterated the need for Scotland to adopt job-creating schemes like the EU Youth Guarantee.

The Youth Guarantee aims to tackle youth unemployment, and seeks to ensure that all young people under 25 are offered a quality job, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship within four months of leaving formal education, or becoming unemployed.

Constance said: “Having met representatives from Finland and Austria which have implemented their own Youth Guarantees, as well as the European Youth Forum, I have heard clear evidence of the benefits that a programme rolled out across Europe could bring.

“I have written again to the UK Government, who has so far failed to fully endorse the European Union’s Youth Guarantee, today asking them to realise the benefits of such as scheme”. Read more via the information
