About Us

DYW Moray was established in April 2016, to provide focused support and guidance to Employers and Educational Establishments in Moray.

By creating stronger links between businesses and education we seek to provide more opportunities for young people to be better prepared for the world of work. Nationally, Developing the Young Workforce is a government funded project made up of 21 regional groups across Scotland.
