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.
Who are DYW?
Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) is an organisation that aims to better prepare young people for the world of work. DYW helps you get the support you need to get to your dream job. Whether that's jobs, apprenticeships, college, university courses, training or volunteering.
How do DYW help young people?
DYW offers support for those who might not know how to get to their career goals. They offer a place for you to see all the opportunities available to you, from university courses to apprenticeships and to jobs. They also often appear at career events where there are workshops and stands by other organisations to show you what opportunities there are out there.
DYW are there to help, so whenever you may need some guidance, you can always get in contact with them directly, or you can speak to a school coordinator in your local school where they will be able to help you make decisions on where you should go after school to get to your goals.
