Bringing together stakeholders in education and training, including schools, colleges, training providers, awarding bodies and skills professionals, this seminar provided a timely opportunity to discuss the future of skills development and apprenticeships in Scotland.
It took place one year on from the publication of the Scottish Government's Youth Employment Strategy Developing the Young Workforce - informed by the Wood Commission - which outlined the Government's plan to reduce youth unemployment by 2021.
Sessions assessed progress being made, and next steps, in key areas outlined in the strategy including the development of college partnerships, senior vocational pathways and apprenticeships, and measures to encourage employer engagement with Scottish youth. Further sessions considered plans to reduce gender imbalance and stereotyping within education and employment.
