Developing the Young Workforce

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) 21 regional groups are preparing to launch an equalities focused week of events and social media campaign across Scotland on w/c Monday 16th November 2020. The week campaign will be aimed at employers, parents and young people that promotes, illustrates and celebrates diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

They will be using #ajobforeverybody to share stories and experiences which prove that everyone can contribute and be of benefit to employers.

This year they are also introducing a new feature as part of the week – #myskillsmakeme

Similar to #NoWrongPath they have produced a simple visual template that people from all backgrounds will be able to download and use to highlight their skills and encourages them to think aspirationally about their career pathways.

By looking beyond the barrier or condition they want to show young people and individuals that by working on their skills, attitude and approach to life they have it within their control to affect their outcome and we want employers to see the emerging talent of our young people based on the skills they are developing.

You can find more information and download their social media templates on their website–training/ajobforeverybody-campaign
