World Youth Skills Day 2022

The United Nations general assembly declared July 15th as ‘World Youth Skills Day’. This years’ theme was ‘Transforming Youth Skills for the Future’.

The day is significant as it provides opportunities for employment and lifelong learning, through facilitated interaction among young people, technical and vocational education, businesses and training providers. 

To mark this important day, HMP & YOI Polmont held an employability event for those in our care with key internal and external stakeholders and partners. Representatives from a number of organisations attended the event, including The Verdancy Group, Tigers LTD, Springboard, Celtic FC Foundation, Rangers Charity Foundation, Anna Walls Consultancy, Fife College and Barnardo's Scotland.

The event showcased Polmont's future commitment towards strengthening these partnerships, and ensuring learning and employment opportunities are available for our population.
