Opportunities for All

Opportunities for All is a pledge from the Scottish Government to guarantee a place in education or training for 16 – 19 year olds.  It provides existing national and local policies and strategies with a single focus to improve young people’s participation in post 16 learning or training, and ultimately their employment, through appropriate intervention and support until at least their 20th birthday. 

This builds on existing entitlements and commitments to support youth employment and on-going participation in learning or training through Curriculum for Excellence Senior Phase, Skills for Learning Life and Work detailed in Building the Curriculum 4, robust transition planning through 16+ Learning Choices and support offered through More Choices, More Chances

It seeks to ensure access for all our young people to a wide range of opportunities, including staying on at school, Activity Agreements, additional opportunities offered through Inspiring Scotland, Community Jobs Scotland and other ventures, National Training Programmes, university and college courses and Jobcentre Plus provision for young people.
