DYW has partnered with disability experts ENABLE Scotland to deliver an engaging new free webinar for employers to explore the steps to inspiring young people with additional support needs.
Work experience is among the top three most effective activities for self-management, understanding the world of work, improving attainment, career thinking, broadening and raising aspirations and accessing part-time work. This interactive webinar will provide you with support in the delivery of meaningful work placements for young people that offer the best value to your business. In response to the current working environment we’ll explore flexible approaches to placements and what you can do to prepare.
Developing a diverse, inclusive and innovative workplace is more important than ever. Through Developing the Young Workforce we have seen the positive impact of when businesses are involved in informing and inspiring young people while they are still in education. This free webinar will increase your confidence to discuss your industry to a young audience and provide you with top tips to plan and deliver activities virtually, in school or in college.
Nationally, Developing the Young Workforce announced ‘Youth unemployment has decreased by 48%’ however; there is a complex picture underneath this headline position, and one in which it is apparent that some groups of young people are particularly disadvantaged.

During the session you will explore key mentoring skills and will also receive a detailed guide to mentoring that is packed full of practical hints and tips as well as sources of reference for further self-directed learning.
