Activity Agreements are being delivered to young people across all 32 local authorities in Scotland. Activity Agreements are for those young people who may not, without additional support, make a successful transition to work, further education or training. The information provided on these pages aims to support and inform all local authorities and their partners to best deliver within the Activity Agreement framework.
If you require any further information or wish to share practice from your local authority through this website, please contact Sandra McIntyre.
Activity Agreement - National Delivery Model
This model has been developed to capture the key principles underpinning the Activity Agreement approach to engaging with young people furthest from the labour market. This model has been successful in supporting participants to progress and sustain further learning, training and employment. It is intended to inform how these key elements can support flexibility and choice in the wider development of senior learning and pathways. Whilst Activity Agreements focus on those young people who have left school, the model is applicable to other settings such as education and other employability programmes.
First National Event for Activity Agreement Trusted Professionals
Over 80 professionals undertaking the Trusted Professional role for young people participating in Activity Agreements across Scotland came together on 2 September 2014. The keynote speaker focused on the issues of working with young people who present with mental health issues. Workshops covered a range of topics relevant to supporting young people on Activity Agreements. Slides from the keynote speaker are available here
One of the workshops invited participants to share resources that they have found useful in their work with young people. We are keen to collect as many as possible and intend to make these accessible to all Trusted Professionals. If you have a resource (a toolkit, a piece of groupwork, a website etc) that you would like to be included please complete the form and email it to Marielle Bruce.
