CWVYS members and those interested, the Welsh Government have recently published updated guidance on the Youth Engagement and Progression Framework, you can find a message from Lowri Reed, Senior Youth Engagement and Progression Manager at the Youth Engagement Branch;

I am pleased to announce the publication of new guidance on the Youth Engagement and Progression Framework (‘the Framework’), following a consultation with stakeholders and young people in 2021. Please find links to the new guidance, which consist of an Overview and Handbook.

Strengthening the Framework is a key Programme for Government commitment, and the new guidance is an important milestone as we take forwards this agenda. The Minister for Education and Welsh Language has published a Written Statement to highlight the new guidance and the Framework’s important contribution towards the delivery of our national milestones, including the milestone of ensuring at least 90% of 16 to 24 year olds are in education, employment, or training by 2050.

I would like to thank you all for your contribution towards the development of this guidance.

This information is also being shared with the relevant local authority Directors.

Kind regards,



CWVYS Members have been emailed a number of additional materials which were developed over the summer with the support of a working group, consisting of local authority and Careers Wales representatives.
