Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
A report providing the Committee with an update on the most recent Annual Participation Measure published in September 2018 was considered. The Annual Participation Measure reports on the economic and employment activity
of the wider 16-19 year old cohort, including those at school. The measure is used to inform policy, planning and service delivery and to determine the impact of the Opportunities for All commitment.
The Committee agreed:
1. to note the publication of the 2018 Annual Participation Measure and that Annual Participation Measure has replaced School Leaver Destination Reports as a source of the national indicator, “increase the proportion of young people in learning, training or work”; and
2. that Opportunities for All and Developing Young Workforce programmes had contributed positively to Argyll and Bute 2018 participation measures being above both the Scottish average and comparator authorities.
