This month DYW Forth Valley sponsored Metafest at Codebase, an interactive and inspiring event which offered a range of activities, workshops and exhibitions from all sectors of the tech world, including 3D printing, virtual reality, gaming, coding, holograms, animation and much more.
This was an opportunity for the whole family to attend a packed day and have fun while gaining an insight into what the digital sector has to offer, as well as meeting some of the country’s leading technology companies.
You can see more photos from the day in the slideshow at the bottom of this post!

On Thursday 22 November more than 120 attendees from across Forth Valley joined us for our first ever conference. The ‘Be Inspired’ Conference brought businesses, local authorities, 3rd sector organisations and educators together to inspire innovative partnerships to better prepare young people for the world of work.
All delegates heard about DYW’s success stories, future plans and took part in a series of interactive ‘Focus On’ sessions specifically designed to energise attendees to consider the challenges and opportunities associated with developing Forth Valley’s young workforce to their full potential.
These sessions were delivered by DYW Forth Valley partners Robertson Group, Drummond Laurie, Forth Valley College and Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Councils, designed to explore challenges and opportunities associated with developing the young workforce.
The Conference brought together businesses, local authorities, 3rd sector organisations and educators to inspire innovative partnerships to better prepare young people for the world of work. Local businesses were also encouraged to consider how they could offer exciting, educational and effective employment opportunities.
