Commenting on the release of the ‘positive destinations’ statistics, Scottish Labour’s education spokesperson Iain Gray MSP said:

“Scotland’s young people are continuing to achieve, and any and all progress towards ensuring they can reach their full potential is to be welcomed.

“However, these ‘positive destination’ stats include those in zero-hours, temporary and precarious work, by no measure a ‘positive’ experience just after school. Even within this, an unacceptable deprivation-based gap remains.

“If the government want to use these statistics as proof of success, they must accept Labour’s demands and ensure the criteria removes exploitative working conditions.”
