Event description

Description

The DYW D&A team, working in partnership with both Angus and Dundee City Councils, would like to invite you to take part in our second Meaningful Work Experience Workshop.

The Meaningful Work Experience Workshop will offer you strategies, advice and a best practice toolkit to ensure that when your company takes on a young person for a work experience placement, it is a positive and valuable experience for you, your staff and the young person.

Research has shown that 4 quality career interventions (professionals engaging with young people) while in education means a young person is 86% less likely to be NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training.)

This workshop will be run by Bryan Leslie from Abacus Coaching.

Who should attend:

This workshop is designed to support individuals who supervise and manage work placements within their organisations or would like to find out how to provide a more meaningful work experience to both the young person and their organisation.

Location: Dudhope Castle, Dundee.

Date: Friday 23 August

Time: 2-5pm

Cost: Free

This event will start at 2 pm and will be finished at 5pm.
