Building Engagement, Building Futures sets out the Government's strategy to improve the opportunities for young people so they gain the skills they need to secure an apprenticeship or employment. It includes radical reforms to schools, vocational education, skills and welfare provision, and has five priorities for action: (1) Raising attainment in school so that young people have the skills to compete in the global economy; (2) Helping local partners provide services that support all young people, putting the UK on track to achieve full participation for 16-17 year olds by 2015. (3) Encouraging employers to offer more high quality apprenticeships and work experience places; (4) Ensuring that work pays and giving young people the personalised support they need to find it, through Universal Credit, the Work Programme and the Get Britain Working measures; (5) Putting in place a new Youth Contract worth almost £1 billion over the next three years.
