Event description

Description

An opportunity for education staff and employers to come together and discuss what employers see as valuable employability characteristics in young people and what the imminent challenges facing business when it comes to staffing, skills and employability.

We think that, in order to further build links and understanding between employers and education, an opportunity for teachers, SDS staff and employers to get together and discuss the challenges they face, learn about the differing perspectives and objectives that various stakeholders face, and how these may possibly conflict, may be helpful in building a better understanding.

This event is brought to you by DYW West Highland

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW), is a Scottish Government Youth Employment strategy, to reduce youth unemployment by 40% by 2021, in response to the recommendations in the Wood Commission report. There are 21 regional DYW groups in Scotland, leading and driving the change in employers’ engagement with schools and colleges.

DYW West Highland is hosted by Lochaber Chamber of Commerce, and we are based in Fort William. We work collaboratively with The Highland Council, Skills Development Scotland, Partner Agencies, Secondary Schools and Colleges (West Highland College UHI and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig). By working together, we can help employers shape the future workforce of the West Highlands and help better prepare young people for the world of work.

Our DYW team cover Lochaber, Skye and Wester Ross – where we aim to expand opportunities to young people, through employer-led initiatives, so that they gain valuable workplace skills and further education opportunities, making them more attractive to employers.
