Positive Futures: Getting Transition Right in Scotland

The ‘Positive Futures’ paper develops the thinking and takes account of ‘big picture’ developments since the 2015 ‘Transition in Scotland‘ report was prepared by my predecessor, Eric Fraser.  As well as economic and demographic change, and changes afoot in our Armed Forces, it takes account of the vision and 2028 outcomes set out in the first ever UK-wide, long-term Strategy for our Veterans and initial findings from the public consultation on the Strategy.


You can view the Positive Futures paper here.


If you would like to print a copy of the paper, you can do so here.


This initial paper sets the scene for a series of short papers on different aspects of transition, which will contain specific recommendations for Government, the first of which, looking at employment, skills and learning is planned for next spring.

We’ll also be sharing the experiences of some of the Service leavers we’ve spoken with, including their journeys, how they found the process, and the support they accessed. You can read these here.
