Employability Strategies / Action Plans /
Eilean Siar Youth Employment Activity Plan
Outer Hebrides Youth Employment Activity Plan
Opportunities for All is an explicit commitment by Scottish
Government to offer a place in learning or training to every 16-19
year old not currently in employment, education or training. It
also ensures that the post-16 system focuses on supporting those at
risk of disengaging and those who have already done so.
The OHYEAP will enable partner agencies, parents
and individuals to identify the appropriate local support available
to help young people progress towards employment and incorporates
the provision available across the 5 stages of the employability
pipeline (this is explained further within the document).
Whilst Opportunities for All is a specific commitment to 16-19
year olds, this guide also reflects employability support available
to young people in the Outer Hebrides up to their 25th
