Founders4Schools and Marketplace

The Developing the Young Workforce team in Dundee and Angus are encouraging local employers to sign up to a new, on-line platform to connect them with education.

Marketplace with Founders4Schools will help you easily connect with education to boost youth employability and close the skills gap. Research proves that pupils with four encounters with employers are 86% less likely to end up not in employment, education or training, and will earn 18% more, so your input makes a big difference.

There are two simple ways to sign up to Marketplace:

  1. Sign up to Founders4Schools to be asked to support education. Once you have signed up, local educators will be able to invite you to inspire young people. Give as little as an hour:
  2. Sign up to offer specific opportunities to education. Here you can offer workshops, talks, site visits and more to local young people, while raising awareness about your organisation. This lets local educators know what’s on offer nearby, and they can contact you if your offer suits their needs.


We look forward to sharing more news about your connections into education and the benefits your organisation and young people are gaining from it.
