The Edinburgh Guarantee is part of the City of Edinburgh Council. It’s a vision that all sectors of the City will work together to ensure that every school leaver in Edinburgh will leave with the choice of a job, training or further education opportunity available to them.

The website and Schools Bulletin are one of the most recognised routes for young people to find out about current opportunities in Edinburgh. They always have a good selection of opportunities available and their team are happy to answer any questions you might have.

They have over 2,000 young people registered on their website. Registration is really simple and once you have done it you can apply for any of the opportunities you see advertised on the website. There are also some useful links, videos and testimonies to look at.

For more information or help with registering on the website please e-mail the team or visit the website at:

Armed Forces Covenant

The Secretary of State for Defence has announced the excellent news that the very popular Forces Help To Buy scheme will be extended into 2018. The scheme which was launched in 2014, allows serving military personnel to borrow up to half their salary up to a cap of £25,000, interest free over ten years so they can buy their first home, extend a current one or move up the property ladder.

The news is featured on the Armed Forces Covenant website
