DYW Moray Annual Report 2021-2022
DYW Moray's Annual Report 2021-2022 is now available.
Developing the Young Workforce is a national government funded project made up of 21 regional groups across Scotland, including Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Moray, with an overall aim to provide more opportunities for young people to be better prepared for the world of work and lower youth unemployment.
In this year's Annual Report, the Chair of DYW Moray, Brian MacAulay, said: "There is a real appreciation in the region for the importance of preparing our young people to enter the workplace.
"The DYW Moray Board has pledged to deliver on its three-year strategy, which is to build a strong partnership foundation to find sustainable solutions to prepare all young people in Moray for entering the world of work."
The Annual Report details our statistics, our activity, provides an update on our communications, and much more.
In our Annual Report, each of our School Coordinators reflect on the past twelve months within their secondary schools as well as look ahead at what's to come.
Jolene Young, DYW Moray School Coordinator with Lossiemouth High School and Speyside High School, said: "We have some amazing companies in Moray and, over the next few months, I will be reaching out to more of them to introduce DYW and see if they would like to build relationships with the schools."
Kelly Cormack, DYW Moray School Coordinator with Buckie High School and Keith Grammar School, said: "We are very fortunate in Moray where we have an abundance of willing employers, large and small, who see the value in developing the young workforce and are eager in supporting the young people into the workplace to grow our local industries."
Carinne Taylor, DYW Moray School Coordinator with Elgin Academy and Forres Academy, said: "I am looking forward to developing relationships further, and discovering new local businesses who can contribute to the work of the incredible businesses who are already actively engaged with DYW Moray to better prepare our Moray young people for the world of work."
Amanda Hedley, DYW Moray School Coordinator with Elgin High School and Milne's High School, said: "I think that we will see a very busy year ahead of engagement from employers and more uptake from schools to help young people gain an insight into the world of work and sectors that they are interested in."
In this year's Annual Report, we also hear from our two current Modern Apprentices, Phillip Wood and Emma Milton, our brand-new Modern Apprentice, Zoe Stuart, our Business Liaison, Aimee Stephen, and our Programme Manager, Sarah Barnes, and we also hear what people from around Moray have to say about DYW Moray.
