Clackmannanshire Council wants every young person who leaves school to be in the best possible position to take up employment, training or further learning.

Schools prepare and support each young person for an ambitious and rewarding career pathway.

Young people who leave school must be fully supported to enable them to follow a career pathway. They should be encouraged to think about their next destinations after school in a step-by-step way.

16+ Learning Choices

Some young people need more support than others. They may face a number of barriers to participating in learning and moving on with their lives. For them, Clackmannanshire has a new Activity Agreement programme.

What is an Activity Agreement?

An Activity Agreement is a written arrangement between a young person and their Activity Agreement key worker where they agree to take part in a programme of learning and activities to get them ready for further training, formal learning or employment. Activity Agreements are not time limited and are based on an individual's needs.

Who is eligible for an Activity Agreement?

Young people eligible for an Activity Agreement are

  • those who choose to leave school at their statutory leaving date, but who have not secured an 'agreed offer' of work, training or further learning at the point of leaving;
  • those who are about to leave school, but who are at risk of not making a positive transition to work, training or further learning;
  • those who made an initial positive transition from school, but have subsequently dropped out of work, training or further learning.

Young people who sign up to an Activity Agreement may be entitled to apply for an Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA).
