Young Person's Guarantee

The Young Person’s Guarantee is the Scottish Government’s call to action nationally to guarantee every young person in Scotland the opportunity to access training, jobs, apprenticeships, volunteering and education, all of which have been affected due to the impact of COVID-19.

To make things easier for young people in Edinburgh, there is a new dedicated Young Person’s Guarantee Team based at Capital City Partnership who are readily available to support young people, aged 16 to 24 to access:

  • Training
  • Jobs and Apprenticeships
  • Education
  • Volunteering.

The Young Person’s Guarantee team regularly liaise with over 50 different organisations, including our colleagues involved in the wider Edinburgh Guarantee offer, to make sure they have the latest information on opportunities for you.

Whether you have an idea of what you’d like to do in the future or you just want a chat to explore options, our team can support you.

The School Leavers Toolkit launched on 30 May 2022 and is an information resource to support young people as they transition into the post-school world. ​The Toolkit covers a range of topics including mental well-being, work and pay, finances, moving out and housing options, community involvement and young people’s rights. You can find the Toolkit at
