PARLIAMENTARY MOTION LODGED IN PRAISE OF LOCAL YOUTH EMPLOYMENT INITIATIVE

Publised date : 30 Nov 2016

A motion was lodged in the Scottish Parliament today by Mid Fife and Glenrothes MSP Jenny Gilruth in praise of the young people in her constituency who took part in the Get into Retail youth employment initiative.

The programme, run by the Prince’s Trust is based within Asda’s Glenrothes store.

Ms Gilruth’s motion requests that the Parliament understands that the four-week training programme offered a group of unemployed young people the chance to gain valuable work experience, training and mentoring and notes that nearly all of those who took part in the programme have now been offered a permanent contract with Asda.

The motion also asks that the Parliament commends all those involved on their achievements and considers that programmes, such as Get into Retail, are of great value in terms of improving the skills and confidence of young people and tackling youth unemployment.
