DYW Skills Academy: Get Industry Ready

Wednesday, 7th July 2021

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our 2021 Summer Leavers Programme!

If you have just left school and are trying to make a decision around education or your career, we can help! Our DYW Skills Academy is focused on getting you industry-ready; giving you all of the insight, skills and knowledge you need to prepare for the next stage in your life.

With video content delivered by industry experts, e-learning opportunities to enhance your CV, virtual mock interviews and CV checks by employers, we have everything you need to build your industry readiness.

If you are a parent or carer and would like to find out more about the options available for a young person, or would like to help a young person make an informed decision about their future, we have a number of videos for you - just check out last year’s Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Events at https://www.dyw.scot/sbpe.html
