Young Person’s Guarantee Webinar for Employers Addressing the Climate Emergency

Young Person’s Guarantee Webinar for Employers Addressing the Climate Emergency

The ambition of the Young Person’s Guarantee is that within two years every young person in Scotland aged 16-24 will have the opportunity of a job, apprenticeship, further or higher education, training programme or volunteering.

The impact of the pandemic on employers and young people alongside a challenging labour market means that there has never been a more important time to consider how young talent can benefit your organisation.

This webinar will help employers involved in addressing the Climate Emergency find out why it makes it easier for young people and employers to connect, and how to get involved.

Delivered by the Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland the webinar includes:

  • an overview of the Young Person’s Guarantee, the 5 asks of employers and how to sign up
  • examples from employers on how they’ve got involved
  • Climate Emergency information from SDS and information on apprenticeships and business support


The event will be hosted and introduced by Fuel Change.

The webinar takes place Wednesday 16 March, 10am
