Apply for #YSNext

#YSNext is our next steps to employment package of support for young people not in education or employment. It’s designed to support you to develop new skills, make everyday living easier, and promote health and wellbeing.

Who is #YSNext for?

#YSNext is designed to support those who are looking for work to take their next steps towards employment. The package is available to those in Scotland aged 16-25 inclusive who are not in education (including school, college or university), ongoing training (for example, an apprenticeship) or employment.

Maybe you've just left school and are looking for your first job, or you've just finished college or university and are navigating the graduate job market. Maybe you've been affected by redundancies and are looking for your next opportunity. Regardless of your situation, if you're not in employment, work or education, #YSNext is for you.

What's included in #YSNext?

#YSNext is designed to support you while you take your next steps. The package is delivered digitally, so no matter where in Scotland you live, you can get support.

#YSNext support is tailored to you. For example, if you need new clothes for an interview, you might receive a voucher to help you buy some. Or, if you need books to develop your skills, let us know and we can provide National Book Tokens. Whatever it is you need, #YSNext is here to support you.
