Young people will be guaranteed a job, education or formal training under a new Scottish government scheme.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the "youth guarantee" was aimed at ensuring young people do not carry the "economic scars" of coronavirus into adulthood.

The £60m initiative will be backed by additional money for apprenticeships.

It was announced as Ms Sturgeon set out her government's plans for the next year.

Under the proposals, everyone aged between 16 and 24 bin Scotland will be guaranteed "an opportunity at university or college, an apprenticeship programme, employment including work experience, or participating in a formal volunteering programme".

Ms Sturgeon said further details would be outlined by the finance secretary on Wednesday.

And she said the guarantee "signals our absolute determination that youth unemployment will not be a legacy of this pandemic."
