Recognition Award Winners Announced!
In light of COVID 19 we were not able to hold our annual recognition awards in June 2020. However the nomination process was still open and we were delighted to receive so many nominations in the three categories: Business, Individual and School/College.
Our 2020 Winners have been announced! We would like to say a massive thank you to all the nominees for their continued support to drive forward the aims and objectives of DYW in Dundee and Angus.
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.
