Educator

The responsibility on you, those who educate our next generation, is immense. With an ever evolving ask on what is to be taught, and constant change on how it is taught, we understand the challenges you face. That is why it is our role to support you.

How can we work together?

Working together, we can bring to life elements of the curriculum that relate to career guidance and future opportunities for our young people.

The role you play towards developing the employability of our region’s young people is key and we’re here to support you with your work in this area.

Taking the curriculum and translating it into careers can be a significant turning point for young people – no longer is a subject something that just has to be learned, now it is something that can be applied in the world of work too. For example, what could be more relevant to a persuasive writing class during English than an inspirational talk from a journalist who uses the techniques learned every day. Brining the curriculum to life through workshops, talks and other events organised by us is an ideal way to help the young people see the potential.

Those within education play a significant role within the lives of our region’s young people. They will often turn to people within education for advice and guidance on much more than the subjects being taught. By keeping you informed and up to date on the latest career-focused programmes, projects, initiatives, and opportunities available to them.

Our team can work with you to develop and deliver lessons and sessions on developing young people’s meta skills from CV writing to public speaking., bringing in the most experienced people within our network to deliver these sessions.

Ensuring the work, we do is as inclusive as possible; we understand the barriers ASN groups have. In working with us, together we can develop specific and tailored support programmes.

Our school coordinators

As one of 21 DYW Groups across Scotland, we are unique in that we have a team of in-school co-ordinators. The role enhances the dynamic between school and programme, with each co-ordinator taking the time to learn about the specific need of each school and the young people within their school community. To make the most of this support resource, just say hello.
