At Stirling Community Enterprise, we see the potential in everyone and are committed to supporting those experiencing barriers to employment to progress in life through training, support and fair work opportunities.

The Young Person's Guarantee (YPG), backed by an additional £60 million investment, aims to give all young people in Scotland the chance to succeed despite the economic impacts of coronavirus. The initial report, Delivering the Youth Guarantee from Sandy Begbie sets out the ambition to “guarantee to every young person aged between 16 and 24 in Scotland 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.”

If you are passionate about working with young people and experienced in working in partnership to deliver employability support then this may be the role for you.
