This International Youth Day the theme is transforming education - something that we have been passionate about for years since establishing secondary and alternative education programmes to enable young people to fulfil their potential and develop skills for life.
A third of school leavers still do not achieve five A*-C grade GCSEs and more than half of young people in Scotland do not achieve 5 National Fives. The situation is even worse for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are far more likely to fail to achieve at these levels than their peers.
Last year, our Mosaic and Achieve programmes supported 20,760 young people to build their aspirations and thrive in education. With your support, we can exapnd out network of schools and committed mentors so our programmes can help even more young people to achieve at school.
