On Thursday 14 June the very first DYW D&A Recognition Event took place at Gardyne Campus, Dundee & Angus College. The event was a huge success with over 130 attendees coming along on the night to celebrate the successes of the past 18months.
The night kicked off with the opportunity to network, enjoy some food and view displays showing some examples of DYW activity in our schools. This was followed by the award ceremony, MC’d by Craig Nicol, DYW D&A board Chair. Our brand new DYW D&A video was also premiered on the night. The video showcased just some of the amazing partnerships which have been created with the support from the team in and around Dundee and Angus area: keep a look out for it on our website and across our social media channels very soon.
The list of nominees for each of the 10 categories was outstanding, and the selection panel had a very tough time narrowing these down.
