Developing the Young Workforce (DYW)

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) North East makes it easier for employers to connect with young people in schools and colleges across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Our goal is to make a difference and empower the young people in our region with knowledge, inspiration, and experience before entering the workforce.

DYW North East plays a key part in the delivery of the Young Person’s Guarantee. The Young Person’s Guarantee aims to connect every 16 to 24 year old in Scotland to a positive opportunity. Becoming a Young Person’s Guarantee pledge partner allows employers to plan and structure their activities with young people, with support from DYW North East and our partners.

Your business is their future. Their future is your business.
