Young Person’s Guarantee
The Young Person’s Guarantee will ensure there is no ‘lost generation’ in Wales as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to provide everyone under the age of 25, living in Wales, with support to gain a place in education or training, and help to get into work or become self-employed.
The guarantee brings together a range of programmes and initiatives which have been designed to provide the right support at the right time for the diverse needs of young people across Wales.
The Welsh Government is asking businesses across Wales to commit to the Young Person’s Guarantee and help make it a success by offering opportunities for young people to gain experience or take their first steps into the world of work through work experience placements, work tasters, apprenticeships or employment.
Welsh Government is committed to promoting fair work. Employers are encouraged to provide employment opportunities aligned to the principles of fair work.
Future proof your business
Employing young people and providing fair work is a great way to future proof your business and find new talent with fresh perspectives. As part of the Young Person’s Guarantee, businesses are being supported to recruit and offer work experience opportunities to young people through wage subsidies, training grants and expert advice.
Support packages that form part of the Young Person’s Guarantee include:
- Jobs Growth Wales+
- Personal Learning Accounts
- Communities for Work+
- Employment and Enterprise Bureaus
