Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Argyll is one of 21 regional DYW groups across Scotland. We aim to help young people attain the right skills and experiences to move from education into employment.
We work to bring businesses and education closer together to support young people to become more work ready through taking part in quality work-related activities whilst still at school and increasing work-based learning opportunities such as modern apprenticeships on leaving school.
Ultimately our aim is to bring Industry and Education together to engage, inspire, and shape Argyll’s young workforce. Businesses can play their part in achieving this vision by offering new and existing members of their teams access to the Apprenticeship Family of qualifications, which will enable them to develop a workforce with skills that they need and involves nothing more than simply investing a little bit of time in them.
All DYW regional groups are industry led. We work with employers to better inform education of the needs of the local labour market to support the curriculum to be more work focused.
