Investing in Young People

Investing in Young People

In NHS Forth Valley we recognise that recruiting and developing young people is a great way to develop a more dynamic and productive workforce and can help tackle issues such as an ageing workforce, skills gaps and shortages, talent development and succession planning. Last year we began the process of applying for the Investors in Young People Standard and we aim to achieve this during assessment, which will take place from 30 April – 4 May 2018.

Investors in Young People is a good practice framework that supports organisations looking to recruit, retain and develop young people and offers recognition for those that are already doing this. It focuses on three key elements of Youth Employment:

  • Attraction and Recruitment
  • Support and Development
  • Retention
