Developing the Young Workforce Glasgow is part of the Scottish Government’s strategy, aimed at creating stronger industry links with education and increasing youth employment.

Our vision is to use employer leadership within the youth employment and skills system, creating opportunities for young people which in turn support industry and local economic development. 

We do this in a number of ways including acting as a single point of contact for employers looking to recruit young people in city, by advising them on the initiatives best suited to their business. We also develop and support partnerships between businesses, schools and colleges bringing industry closer to education.

We work closely with a range of partners including Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council, Skills Development Scotland and the colleges in the region.
