  • Why have we improved despite our economic frailty? • National and local policy focus - consistent direction of travel and consistently high priority amongst our politicians • Investment of time and resources in partnership and infrastructure development • Commitment to understanding the needs of our young people better and supporting our most vulnerable • But…..is this real improvement (or statistical improvement)?
  • Glasgow’s Youth Gateway • One referral form, a single entry point into GYG – no wrong door • Risk Matrix and Data Sharing Agreements • Case allocation based on systematic, consistent criteria; • Shared Case Management at local levels (school, job centre etc) and referrals based on need • Referral Routes (two way) with Glasgow’s Training, Voluntary and Private Sector provision • Co-location of staff and area team communication model • Shared publicised targets

  • • Glasgow’s Model for Activity Agreements
  • Solutions rather than sticking plasters… • Earlier intervention • Focus on aspirations from primary school (age 5+) • Better understanding of labour markets and growth areas – huge skills deficits in growth areas • Better partnerships with businesses – enough jobs to go round in the city to employ every young person who lives there! • Better understanding of young people’s needs; and better support to their parents
  • • to increase the aspirations and choices available to Glasgow’s children and young people in respect of their future careers • to improve and contextualise employability and sector specific skills to make our young people’s ambitions achievable • to increase the number of young people leaving Local Authority funded education into high quality, positive and sustained destinations with clear future career pathways Time to be a bit more ambitious… Re-defining our Aims
  • Enterprise Skills&Aspirations Employability TransitionInclusion School and Business Partnership
  • Strong Focus on Economic Growth – business partnerships are key – Engineering – Low Carbon Industries – Hospitality – Life Sciences – Financial Services – Creative Industries – New qualifications, new locations and methods of learning, greater fluidity between school, college and the workplace…
  • Redefining Skills and Updating Aspirations • 25% of our boys want to work in the construction industry – construction makes up less than 5% of the Glasgow labour market • Translating these aspirations to 21st century – e.g. green / digital infrastructures; • Start aged 5 through to 19 with a coherent approach that involves parents as well as children
