The 6th annual statistical publication reporting on learning, training and work activity of 16-19 year olds in Scotland has been published by Skills Development Scotland
The measure is used to inform policy, planning and service delivery, and to assess progress in the delivery of the Scottish Government’s commitment to offer a place in learning or training to every 16-19 year old in Scotland not in employment, education or training. It is also included in the Scottish Government’s National Performance Framework (NPF) as the source of the
indicator, “Percentage of young adults (16-19 year olds) participating in education, training or employment”
The proportion of 16-19 year olds participating in education, training or
employment between April 1st 2019 and 31st March 2020 (the 2020 APM figure) was 92.1%. This represents an increase of 0.5 percentage points (pp) compared to the equivalent 2019 APM figure (91.6%). This is the highest participation rate recorded since the inception of the participation measure.
In Moray the participation figure was above the average at 93.5% which was a 2.2% increase from 2019 and 2.3% increase from 2018.
