Developing the Young Workforce (DYW)

My name is Michael Gibson, I am an Employer Liaison Advisor with Developing the Young Workforce – Dundee and Angus.

Developing the Young Workforce is a Scottish Government Initiative which aims to bring businesses and education closer together. We look to build partnerships between schools and employers to promote work experience and opportunities for young people to get real industry insight.  

Our goal is to equip young people with the skills they need to move into employment or further education when they leave school, and we work closely with all secondary schools in Dundee and Angus, as well as Dundee and Angus College, by bringing together employers, educators and young people.

This helps employers meet their workforce needs, helps young people transition more easily into employment and helps educators collaborate with local employers.

We also have a range of online videos that have been designed to help you better understand and develop the key Career Management Skills that employers are looking for.
