Activity Agreement Programme

For more information about our HYPE programme, please contact Heather Thomson Senior Community Education Worker on 07917 242621 or by email: heather.thomson@westlothian.gov.uk An activity agreement is an agreement between a young person and their “main contact” for the young person to participate in an apprenticeship and activity programme that must be designed and carried out in such a way that the young person is ready to learn or work formally. There must be regular follow-up of the agreement with the young person. The fact that the young person receives an education maintenance allowance (EMA) meets the financial requirements of the EMA. You may be entitled to an educational assistance allowance if you participate in an activity agreement. .
