Published: 12 November 2021

The Welsh Government plans to provide everyone under 25 with the offer of work, education, training, or self- employment.

The offer, through its new Young Person’s Guarantee, will help ensure there is no lost generation in Wales following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minister has unveiled details of how the Welsh Government will develop a Young Person’s Guarantee that delivers for young people in Wales.

The Minister is calling on businesses and public sector organisations to consider how they can play their part in supporting the Young Person’s Guarantee.

Ministers will also look at ways to help young entrepreneurs to create their own businesses. This will include working with the business community to explore both employability opportunities and support for young entrepreneurs.

The Young People’s Guarantee will be developed to meets the needs of young people, including those at risk of long-term unemployment. It will not discriminate in relation to socio-economic factors, the promotion and use of the Welsh language or on the grounds of protected characteristics.
