Whether you have an hour, up to a day, or more time, there is a meaningful way to get involved. We will support you to shape your activity based on your ambitions. There are many different ways you can make a difference for you business and to the lives of young people, including those who face the biggest challenges.
If you have time to inspire and prepare Glasgow's young people on their journey into the world of work then we can support in this. We'll match you with a school where you can work with our DYW Coordinators to engage with the young people
My Climate Path
My Climate Path creates an education legacy from COP26 and promotes green and circular jobs to Scotland's young people. Created by Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Glasgow, with DYW Lanarkshire & East Dunbartonshire and DYW West, proudly supported by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and funded by Scottish Government, this initiative supports awareness of green and circular jobs of the future.
Digital Critical Friends
Currently funded by Glasgow City Council and supported by ScotlandIS, this initiative matches an industry Digital Critical Friend in every Glasgow school. This industry expert will work with Computing Science teachers to support their development in the ever changing industry and help demonstrate to young people the careers available.
Work placements can help young people identify the sorts of jobs they may – or may not – be interested in and can help them make informed choices about their future. Work experience can be flexible and can take many forms, from a 1 hour session to a virtual project.
Applying your industry to teaching in schools
We're working with businesses and Education Scotland to support the curriculum to be industry-focused through co-development and co-delivery of learning in the classroom. Business can provide challenges and information on the application of the curriculum to their industry.
We're happy to talk you through the various pathways to support young people into your business. Our Programme Executives can provide information on the different types of Apprenticeships & Government Initiatives and connect you with the right people.
Young Person's Guarantee
The Young Person's Guarantee brings together employers, partners and young people. It aims to connect every 16 to 24 year old in Scotland to an opportunity. This could be a job, apprenticeship, further or higher education, training or volunteering. It could also be an enterprise opportunity.
