Event Details

Synopsis of Event

The Scottish Government is committed to improving post-school provision for young people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, who are more likely to leave school with few or no qualifications. Poor educational outcomes are likely to have negative effects on employment outcomes and many other aspects of later life.

So, what is being done and how effective are new Scottish initiatives?

At this event we report on our own research in Scotland. We are focusing on the experiences and outcomes of young people in two skills development programmes, one delivered by a college and one by a local council.

The event includes presentations from a training provider and from the Convenor of The Education and Lifelong Learning Committee for the Youth Parliament.

We will conclude by having what we hope will be a lively discussion, bringing everything discussed together.

This event will be of interest to practitioners and policy-makers working in the field of youth transitions, adult education, employability and lifelong learning.

For enquiry concerning registration, please contact Grace Kong at creid-education@ed.ac.uk or 0131 651 6459.
