Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) 21 regional groups are launching an awareness campaign across Scotland (week commencing 1st June) to showcase roles within the key sectors to make young people more aware of the types of jobs involved and what skills/qualities would be required. We are so grateful to Margo Williamson, Chief Executive of Angus Council for taking the time to share her career journey!
On Thursday 27th February Developing the Young Workforce organised a Rural Career Event called Plant the Seed! The aim of this event was to give secondary pupils from Dundee and Angus the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops, meet employers and individuals who work within the sector and learn about the different career options.
