In May 2022, DYW Borders worked in partnership with Camerons Strachan Yuill Architects (CSY), Scottish Borders Council Education Department and Inspire Learning, to offer all the local secondary schools a unique weeklong virtual work placement. This opportunity was offered to pupils from S3 to S6 who had expressed an interest in a career in Architecture or Design which resulted in 20 pupils from 6 schools successfully gaining a place.
