Opportunities for all

​​Every young person who is leaving compulsory education and moving on to further learning, training or employment should receive an offer of post-16 learning.

The Scottish Government made this commitment in Opportunities f​or All, a national initiative that aims to improve young people’s participation in learning or training (and, ultimately, employment) between the ages of 16 and 20 (and beyond).

Another important development is the Commission for Developing Scotland's Young Workforce, set up in 2013 to provide recommendations on how Scotland's approach to vocational education and training could be improved.
