Overview of services

ERC Education is working in partnership with Economic Development, Young Person Services and external partners to offer Learning Agreements that will provide opportunities for young people.

PP is stage one on the Strategic Skills Pipeline and provides tailored activities based on the young person’s immediate and future skills needs. Young people are supported to progress through the pipeline by addressing and removing barriers, identifying a clear pathway towards engagement with learning, training or employment.

Scottish Government recommends a minimum of 3 hours per week engagement and expects a young person to work on developing their Learning Agreement resulting in longer periods of participation. The success of the Learning Agreement is based on agreed milestones and may be added to throughout the period of engagement depending on emerging needs and additional barriers identified.
