The Investors in Young People (IIYP) Good Practice Framework was launched in 2014, in response to the Scottish Government's work on Developing the Young Workforce (DYW). The framework recognises the important contribution that 16-24 year old people make to both organisations and to Scotland's economy and helps organisations attract, recruit and retain young employees.

Achieving the IIYP award enables organisations to evidence their commitment to their young people. Tailored advice is also given to help organisations further their youth employment activity beyond the award assessment.
