No One Left Behind

No One Left Behind is our approach to changing employment support in Scotland to deliver a system that is more tailored and responsive to the needs of people of all ages who want help and support on their journey towards and into work.

Through No One Left Behind, people can gain skills, confidence and access support to help achieve their employment goals. This support may include help to prepare for employment, training, education, and volunteering and to support career progression.

Support is flexible, tailored and person-centred; and also connected with other key services including health, justice, housing provision and advice services ensuring people can get the right support at the right time.

People who choose to participate will:

  • receive support from an Employability Key Worker, and
  • work with the Key Worker on an individual plan to help them reach their goals

The Young Person's Guarantee is a commitment to Scotland's young people

Every young person aged between 16 and 24 in Scotland will have the opportunity, based on their own personal circumstances and ambitions, of going to university or college, an apprenticeship programme, training, fair employment including work experience, or participating in a formal volunteering programme.

The Guarantee will ensure that young people have access to and understanding of the opportunities that can best support them, delivered by a network of support in schools, colleges, universities, employability programmes, third sector support, apprenticeships or training programmes.
