19 January 2018

The target for 2018/19 was recently announced by Minister for Employability and Training Jamie Hepburn in the Scottish Parliament on the Scottish Government’s Developing the Young Workforce agenda.
 
Mr Hepburn also confirmed changes to the rural supplement and increased funding for apprenticeships in key sectors. These enhancements will mitigate against the cost of service delivery in rural locations and provide additional support for training costs in key areas, such as social services.
