Build Your Future
In collaboration with our partners within the Construction Industry, DYW have created ‘Build Your Future’, exploring careers within the Built Environment.
The Build Your Future programme is split into five different themes. This should make it easier to digest, allow educators to utilise the resources in relevant subjects, or for young people and parents/carers to follow at home. With the focus being on the people that underpin the industry, young people can learn about how the subjects they are studying relate to the world of work and their future skills development.

Developing the Young Workforce
Dundee & Angus
We connect employers, education and young people.
This helps employers meet their workforce needs, helps young people transition more easily into work and helps educators collaborate with industry.
Across the whole region there is a pressing need to make sure young people have the right skills and experience to enter fulfilling careers and grow our local economy.
Dundee has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in Scotland. Right now, across Dundee and Angus, there are over 640 young people not in training, education or employment – but we know there are important sectors of the economy with skills shortages and an ageing workforce.
DYW can help overcome some of these challenges.
