Developing the Young Workforce

Bringing business and education together to engage, inspire, and shape our region’s young workforce. Are you in?

DYW Moray helps employers to connect and engage with schools and young people in the local area. Our aim is to provide professional and transparent guidance that suits the needs of your business.

Your business can benefit from engagement with schools. Across Scotland many businesses have formed meaningful partnerships with schools, colleges and other education providers. Employer knowledge and experience can be used to enrich learning across the curriculum, and help young people to improve their understanding and readiness for employment. You can help young people directly or by engaging with the people who support and influence them, such as teachers, lecturers and parents. In particular helping to keep them up-to-date on the changing workplace and opportunities available and how to access them.

Philip Hargreaves, Subsea Recruitment Manager, says: ‘DYW gave us confidence and assistance every step of the way. The work placement opportunity was a rewarding experience for all involved.’

Moray Chamber of Commerce is the host employer for DYW Moray and Sarah Medcraf directs the project. There are two members of staff, Sarah Baxter & Aimee Stephen, who work in the Chamber office to ensure that the aims and objectives of DYW Moray are fully met.
