Year: 2013

Author: Scottish Government

A framework for partners who will be involved in planning and delivering opportunities for looked after young people and care leavers to ensure they experience a positive post-16 transition to further learning, training and employment.

It guides Community Planning Partnerships (CPP) when developing their strategic plan for implementing their family firm up to delivery.

It sets out the Scottish Government policies within which a family firm should operate and considers the key principles and standards for partners at a local level; their roles and responsibilities and the ‘offer’ which they may make.
