What we do
What do you want to be when you grow up?
We have all been asked this question at some point. Yet many of us probably didn’t know that our current jobs – or current employers – even existed. Our aim is for local businesses to show young people that their dream job might just be one they haven’t even heard of yet!
“Imagination is more important than knowledge” Albert Einstein
Companies in West Lothian who are bringing the world of work to life for young people in the classroom are already benefitting from discovering bright young talent right on their doorstep. Just one interaction can have an immense impact on businesses and young people alike. However, for Developing the Young Workforce to achieve its full potential in West Lothian, we know that we need to give every business in West Lothian the opportunity to engage with education and inspire our local young people. That’s why the DYW Team aims to make the process as simple as possible, connecting businesses with education for the benefit of all involved.
