Activity Agreements

What are Activity Agreements?

Activity Agreements are for those young people who may not, without additional support, make a successful transition to work, further education or training.  As part of the school transition planning process, Activity Agreements may be an opportunity offered to young people not ready to move onto formal learning or work.

How does this work in North Ayrshire?

There are various projects delivered by partners within North Ayrshire Council.  These are:

  1. Redburn at Redburn Community Centre – delivered by Community Learning and Development
  2. Rosemount at Rosemount Centre – delivered by Health and Social Care Partnership
  3. Throughcare – delivered by the Health and Social Care Partnership
  4. Extended Outreach Pupil Support – delivered by Education and Youth Employment
  5. Winter and Summer Leavers – delivered by Education and Youth Employment and Community Learning and Development

Programmes are designed and delivered in different ways but all aim to deliver a variety of core elements centring around employability and personal development.  In addition to this, individual support is provided outwith this core/group activity where work placements/tasters, community based projects and outward bound/residential experiences are likely elements of an Activity Agreement.

If you have already left school, referrals are made by Skills Development Scotland (SDS), so pop into your local Careers Centre to speak to an Adviser
