Providing insight into the desirable skills for industry is one way that business can support the development of young people in the local area. Take a look at our case study below to find out how our employer partners have been sharing their expertise with S6 pupils at Linlithgow Academy.
Nicholas Gribben, HR Director for DB Group (Europe) Ltd and one of the employers involved, commented:
"Every business leader knows that there's a challenge in finding suitably skilled talent to recruit and help your business grow due to the growing instability of the economic climate. As an employer that's committed to supporting our community, DB Group have undertaken work in partnership with DYW West Lothian to deliver a number of employability skills sessions with secondary school pupils in the region so we can help develop the workforce of the future. The feedback from educators and young people alike has been fantastic and we've enjoyed engaging with DYW West Lothian to help prepare young people for the world of work."
