All employers, regardless of size and type, can make a real and valuable contribution to preparing young people for the world of work. The employer community is well placed to:

  • Inspire young people to work for you
  • Identify future talent
  • Reduce recruitment costs
  • Improve workforce diversity, flow and retention
  • Help young people develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge for your business or sector
  • Apply the perspective and skills of young people to your business challenges
  • Help to shape the curriculum ensuring course content is industry relevant
  • Promote a positive awareness of your business in the community

In addition, Inverness & Central Highland DYW can help a business understand where the Modern Apprenticeship family and business support tools such as Investors in Young people can accelerate their future growth and success.
