Joined Up for Young People
The Joined Up for Young People (JUfYP) strategy launched in 2021 led by Capital City Partnership to develop collaboration across youth provision in direct response to the Scottish Government’s Young Person's Guarantee Activity Plan(this will open in a new window).
The Joined Up for Young People Strategy
The Joined Up for Young People Strategy in Edinburgh is coordinated by Capital City Partnership and is delivered locally through three key strands:
- Strategic leadership and commissioning of new services - Monitor and coordinate activity across the Youth Employability Partnership and Joined Up for Young People Network.
- Stakeholder partnerships through JUfYP network - Work with partner organisations to develop, support, and coordinate opportunities (employment, volunteering, training, and higher/further education) for young people across Edinburgh.
- Mapping and monitoring existing and newly commissioned youth provision across Edinburgh - Coordinate the Youth Employment Action Plan (YEAP), tracking all opportunities for young people in one place and making it easier for referral partners to source the most suitable destination for their young people.
- Youth Employment Action Plan (updated 27.7.23)
- Youth Strategic Skills Pipeline(this will open in a new window)
Partners looking to secure job outcomes for young people can access help, support and training via Capital City Partnership's Joined Up For Business Team. Their services and contact details are available here.
Employers or organisations seeking to hire young people in Edinburgh can access support through our Young Person's Guarantee partners:
Edinburgh’s Employer Recruitment Incentives(this will open in a new window) (EERI) is funded by the Scottish Government. Employers from all sectors are eligible for EERI, and employers can receive up to £6,000 for newly created jobs or apprenticeships for young people aged between 16-24. The fund intends to help with the costs of recruiting and employing someone who fits the criteria.
Graduate Career Advantage Scotland(this will open in a new window) (GCAS) is an initiative which supports recent, eligible graduates living in Scotland to find rewarding employment. We offer careers support and access to high-quality paid internships by collaborating with employers, universities, and other key agencies.
JUfYP Forum and Steering Group
The JUfYP forum is an independent network of youth providers – run by and for providers through a steering group. The forum is currently under review. Please check back soon for updates. In the meantime, all Youth Providers can join us at the Joined Up For Jobs quarterly forum; sign up here. The forum aims to bring together employability, education, and training partners to share best practices, keep up to date with the latest policy, and build relationships.
