Young Person’s Guarantee Webinar for Employers Addressing Net Zero

Young Person’s Guarantee Webinar for Employers Addressing Net Zero

The Young Person’s Guarantee aims to ensure that within two years every 16-24 year old in Scotland has access to a work or learning opportunity.

The impact of the pandemic on employers and young people alongside a changing labour market means that there’s never been a more important time to consider young talent within the workforce.

Over 500 employers from all industries and of all sizes have already signed up to support the Guarantee, however we need more.

This webinar will help employers involved in addressing Net Zero find out how the Young Person’s Guarantee makes it easier for young people and employers to connect, and how to get involved. 

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

•    An overview of the Young Person’s Guarantee, the 5 asks of employers, benefits to you, and how to sign up
•    Examples from employers on how they’ve got involved with creating opportunities for young people
•    Information from SDS on climate emergency action plan, apprenticeships and business support

The event will be hosted and introduced by Jennifer Tempany, Co-founder of Fuel Change.

The webinar takes place Wednesday 27 April, 10am.
