As some of you may be aware the Scottish Government is hosting a Youth Employment Workshop and we have invited a range of stakeholders to attend.
It has been agreed that £25 million of unallocated European Structural Funds should now be focused on youth employment opportunities.
The workshop will be an chance for stakeholders to shape project development and assist in the delivery of new and additional outcomes.
By supporting the SME community, we intend to stimulate employment opportunities for young people and we hope that the workshop will be the first step in achieving this.
If you did not get an invite this time round please be aware that there may be other opportunities to contribute in the future.
I look forward to seeing you there.
