#NoWrongPath is back and, in a year with significant disruption to education, the messaging of the campaign is more important than ever.
Developing the Young Workforce celebrated the achievements and resilience of young people across Scotland through the new Young People Are Great campaign, which ran from 6th-10th June 2022.
On 5th April 2022, DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian and Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce hosted our first joint Networking Breakfast at the Apex Hotel, Waterloo Place.
Following on from the success of previous years’ Jobs Roadshow’s DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian decided to reimagine how we could bring together employers, further education, higher education, and training providers with the young people in our region to help them find their next step.
From October 2021-April 2022 DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian hosted a Jayden Anderson, a Business Skill Foundation Apprentice from North Berwick High School. Throughout his time with the team Jayden was based within the central team and worked a combination of in the office and from home, managed by our Business Support and Communications Officer, Emma Lacey.
Jayden Anderson, a 5th year student at North Berwick High School was on a work placement with DYW Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian as part of his Foundation Apprenticeship. Jayden wanted to show young people who DYW are and how they are here to help young people achieve your goals in life and set them up for the careers they want to pursue.
As part of the Young People Are Great campaign we are shining the spotlight on our very own Emma Lacey. Emma joined us from high school just over 4 years ago as a Apprentice in Business Administration and is now our Business Support and Communications Officer.
