Developing the Young Workforce are looking for games industry professionals to engage with schools, teachers and pupils in order to build a better understanding of games industry career paths and opportunities.
Developing the Young Workforce is a Scottish Government strategy which aims to help young people get the right skills and experience to move from education into employment. There are 21 regional DYW groups who are helping implement this strategy, working locally to meet the needs of their region.
DYW brings education and business together to support local young people and the local economy, through better informing young people about the world of work and helping create skills pipelines and address skills shortages.
DYW groups work to connect business and education, and can facilitate a variety of engagement opportunities. This could range from offering visits and talks at your work space, to supporting team challenges, offering CPD to teachers so that they can offer their students the best possible learning experience, to giving advice on interviews. DYW work closely with employers and education to make sure every approach is flexible and tailored to meet their needs.
If you are interested in working with young people, teachers or lecturers local to you, let them know or connect with your local DYW team. http://www.employabilityinscotland.com/developing-young-workforce/
