Young Person's Guarantee

There are many different routes into work, and we want to support you to choose the path that's right for you. That is why Glasgow City Council is supporting the Young Person's Guarantee  to help you get a foot in the job market.

Glasgow City Council works with different organisations to help young people join the world of work, whether you want:

  • a job
  • an apprenticeship
  • access to further education
  • a training programme
  • a volunteer work placement

The Young Person's Guarantee School Leavers Toolkit supports young people as they start out in their transition to the post-school world. 

The School Leavers Toolkit, an information resource to support young people as they transition into the post-school world, is now live.

There's lots of information available and we know from that it can be challenging for young people to find the practical life advice they need, when they need it.

The Toolkit covers a range of topics including mental well-being, work and pay, finances, moving out and housing options, community engagement and young people's rights.
