Our DYW Moray School Coordinators and Business Liaison are here to support your school/college through employer engagement to enhance the curriculum offer, and ultimately better prepare young people for the world of work. Below are some ways we can support:
Facilitate Career Talks
Career Talks can ignite a spark in young people that can positively enhance their school learning experience. Read more on how Milne's High School delivered this virtually with Santander here.
Arrange Workplace Visits
Visiting local worksites allows young people to see and experience real workplaces and can inspire them for their future career choices. Keith Grammar attended Strakraft Renewable event in March, find our more here.
Employer Led Workshops
Workshops that fit into curriculum can be a great way of linking theory to the world of work. An example of this from Forres Academy can be found here.
CV Preparation & Mock Interviews
Prepare your young people for their future by hosting CV Preparation sessions and Mock Interviews with local employers. An example of this from Buckie High School can be found here.
Industry Designed Projects
Projects designed by employers with their industry in mind can help develop young peoples employability skills significantly. Read more about the 2022 Baxters Soup Challenge here.
Promote various Career Pathways & Local Job Opportunities
All School opportunities can be accessed through our TEAMS Opportunities channel, using the code 1oew2fo. We advertise local apprenticeship and job opportunities through our jobs page and through our "jobs of the week" flier which is sent directly to schools every Friday.
