Meeting of the Parliament 17 December 2014 : 17 December 2014
The Presiding Officer

The next question is, that motion S4M-11901, in the name of Roseanna Cunningham, on developing Scotland’s young workforce, be agreed to.

Motion agreed to,

That the Parliament endorses the ambitions set out in the Commission for Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce report, Education Working for All!; notes the progress made in reducing youth unemployment in Scotland since the publication of Scotland’s youth employment strategy; recognises that there is more to do in tackling youth unemployment and improving the number and quality of youth employment opportunities; further recognises that the refreshed strategy must take into account the changing economic conditions, focus attention on supporting young people who need more help to participate in the labour market and address legacy issues from the recession; believes that critical to improving youth employment is a world class vocational education system, providing more opportunities for young people; further believes that this will best be achieved by supporting close working between employers and an education system that is responsive to economic and labour market need, and welcomes the Scottish Government’s implementation plan developed with a broad range of partners, including local government, for reducing youth unemployment and unlocking social mobility as set out in the newly published youth employment strategy.
