Introduction to the Young Person’s Guarantee

Posted on:   Posted by:

In November 2021 Welsh Government unveiled a Young Person’s Guarantee – a commitment that everyone under the age of 25 would have the offer of support to gain a place in education or training, find a job or become self-employed.

The commitment was made in response to the pandemic and aims to lessen the effects of COVID and assist young people in pursuing their career goals.

Working Wales is the gateway into the Young Person’s Guarantee and the way in which young people will be able to access the available support. It will build on its already strong and successful model of delivering careers guidance and signposting services.

Are you under 25? Not sure what your options are or what your next steps are? Don’t worry, there are a range of opportunities available to you.

The Welsh Government’s Young Person’s Guarantee provides everyone between 16 and 25 in Wales with the offer of support to gain a place in education, training, or an apprenticeship, find a job or become self employed.

The guarantee provides help with:

  • Choosing the right course
  • Finding an apprenticeship
  • Job searching and help through the application process
  • Starting your own business
