Careers / DYW

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) North East plays a key part in the delivery of the Young Person’s Guarantee, making it easier for employers and education to connect and equip young people for the world of work.

We help schools to form partnerships with industry, allowing pupils to see career pathways, take part in workplace visits, and receive contextualised learning experiences via project-based learning.

At Peterhead Academy, our 2022-2023 partnerships include both Score Group and Symposium as influential partners, and Stella’s Voice and the Scottish Seafood Association as collaborative partners.

If you are interested in promoting your business or sector to young people, but are unsure where to start, please reach out to Sam Foley, DYW Employer School Coordinator on
