Positive Futures: Getting Transition Right in Scotland – Employment, Skills & Learning

Positive Futures: Getting Transition Right in Scotland – Employment, Skills & Learning is the latest in the Positive Futures series of papers, which will examine different aspects of transition.

The new report follows on from the 2019 paper Positive Futures – Getting Transition Right in Scotland, which set the scene with a strategic overview of transition from the Armed Forces today.

The report sets out a series of 10 new recommendations for government which aim to help Service leavers secure a positive future with meaningful employment that utilises their skills. An overview of the report’s findings, including the recommendations in full, can be found here.
