Alternatively if you have an opportunity in mind that you would like to offer to education you can register on Marketplace.
This platform supports our key stakeholders to build young people’s job readiness and increases their career options. At the same time, you can help shape young talent, address skills gaps and source your future workforce.
Come and be inspired to make a difference to young people and your business!
Please join us for a showcase of DYW best practice across Forth Valley; hear directly from young people, employers and educators about how they are benefiting from being involved.
You will hear from inspirational leaders in education and business who understand and recognise the value and impact of developing the young workforce and are leading by example through innovating change to engage, inspire and develop the talent of the future.
Have you ever worked with education? Would you like to? It is easier than you think.
If you can give up an hour or two of your time then all we need is for you to “Do one thing!”
By getting involved you can motivate, inspire and stimulate a pupil by giving them an opportunity to benefit from your knowledge and on the job practical skills.
You can also help them develop their soft skills such as self-confidence, assertiveness, communication, inquisitiveness and creativity.
Can you make your 'one thing' a work placement?
Nationally only 27% of employers offer work placements however development of career management skills in young people at this stage is crucial.
"54% of 18 year olds in forth valley are in higher or further education"
