By signing an agreement, the youth agreed to participate in a number of activities (designed to help them move to a job, general or vocational training) in exchange for an allowance. The agreements were tested in eight areas between April 2006 and March 2008. Activity agreements are open to unemployed 16-19 year olds and need additional support to help them develop their skills in accessing formal education or employment. An activity agreement is an individual set of activities and learning that builds on the needs and interests of young people. It could be a series of activities – music, art, sport, outdoor activities – and can be flexible on the suggestions of young people. The goal is for a young person to be more confident at the end of a program and to feel ready to move on to the next transition to continuing education or employment. To be eligible, a young person must be between the age of 151 and 26 and must not take a job, training or training. An activity agreement is an agreement between a young person and their “primary interlocutor” for the young person to participate in an apprenticeship and activity program that must be planned and implemented in order to help the young person prepare for formal learning or employment.

No One Left Behind (NOLB) Activity agreements are an option for young people leaving school or young people who are not confident in the next step towards university, training or employment. They help create new skills and build confidence. Local hubs offer access points for regular assistance. If you participate in an activity agreement, you are entitled to a living allowance. An activity contract is one of the targeted options for young people who reach the legal school age or can be an option at any time between the ages of 16 and 19. It is part of the Scottish Government`s guarantee of “opportunities for all” for a continuing education offer. A non-formal option under an activity agreement can only begin after the young person has left school; However, planning may take place during their last Parliament, so that they can begin their program after the end of school. The service provides regular support to a young person through a NOLB Activity Agreement Coach and works on an individual level that helps them achieve their goals. Participants may also be entitled to a living allowance for educational institutions.
