A new Attainment Challenge Partnership has been launched by Young Scot. Working with six local authorities, Transport Scotland and Improvement Services the partnership will utilise the smart-enabled Young Scot National Entitlement Card to deliver new targeted and bespoke local smart-entitlements and opportunities, focussed on travel, health and wellbeing, to tackle inequalities, improve attainment in education and challenge rural poverty.

The first stage will focus on pilot projects in North Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and the Highlands where the Young Scot National Entitlement Card will be used to deliver entitlements including preloaded travel tickets in Renfrewshire, access to breakfast in schools in North Ayrshire, and sportswear and equipment in Highlands.
