DYW created a 4 week Summer Leaver’s Programme, “DYW Skills Academy”, aimed at supporting young people leaving school in the summer and are looking for support in preparing them for their next steps in life.  The programme will start on Monday 12th July 2021.

The programme consists of a series of activities and virtual experiences to support young people to build capacity to enter the labour market.


What’s included?

We are offering CV checks and virtual mock interviews, to help you on your journey to your new career, as well as e-learning modules.



Young people will have the opportunity to access a series of e-learning modules.

There are five modules, each taking between 20 and 45 minutes on average to complete.


These modules cover:

The participating young people will automatically receive a certificate of achievement after completing each module.


CV Check

We are happy to have an industry professional look over a draft of your CV to provide advice and feedback to enhance your CV.
