Emma Duncan is aiming to double the number of Young Person’s Guarantee sign ups and is doing so by including Young Person’s Guarantee in all conversations with employers. When canvassing new employers, Emma is discussing how employers can engage with DYW by sending them the Young Person’s Guarantee proforma and explaining that by completing any of the 5 Asks of the Young Person’s Guarantee, they will be successfully supporting young people to reach positive destinations.
As part of DYW activities, Entrepreneur Me created and delivered a series of activities across three days to support new S1 pupils at Madras College in Fife.
