DYW Scotland has launched their national Skills Academy programme.
The DYW Skills Academy provides young people with the insight, knowledge and skills they need to build their confidence and prepare for the world of work.
Through a blend of online Digital Resources, interactive Employer Sessions and One to One Support young people can explore key themes on the world of work, engage with a range of employers and apply their learning to develop their employability skills.
The programme is aimed at young people in senior phase, in particular those preparing to leave school, and includes three core elements:-
Digital Resources: Developed by industry experts, these digital resources can be accessed by young people at any time and explore key employability skills and pathways to jobs and careers.
Employer Sessions: Invite employers into the classroom to deliver interactive sessions exploring key themes bringing the world of work to life.
One to One Support: Young people can put their learning into practice and access one to one employer support by inviting employers to get involved in CV Checks and Mock Interviews.
Employers have a vital role in the programme and through their involvement take a leading role in inspiring young people and shaping the future workforce.
We are reaching out to ask for employer support in the DYW Skills Academy in the West Region.
