DYW Up2U August Webinars
Following on from the national DYW Skills Academy initiative, we would like to introduce ‘Up2U’, a national offer of five, virtual webinars offering advice and guidance regarding college and university pathways, apprenticeships, volunteering and training and motivation hints and tips. The content is relevant to any young person (16-24) or parents/carers seeking insight into next steps post-school, college and training for their young person at home.
Running from Monday 24th August through to Friday, 28th August, there will be five live webinar sessions of panel discussions with industry professionals, young people and specialists. Facilitated by comedian and keynote speaker Gavin Oattes, there will be 20 minutes of discussion with the panelists, followed by a live Question & Answer session where young people will have the opportunity to interact and ask questions.
The five events will be broadcast live over the course of one week with one event per day and will focus on the following pathways:
- Monday 24th August (2pm-2:40pm) – Jobs & Apprenticeships
- Tuesday 25th August (2pm-2:40pm) – College
- Wednesday 26th August (2pm-2:40pm) – University
- Thursday 27th August (2pm-2:40pm) – Training & Volunteering
- Friday 28th August – One Small Step with Gavin Oattes
Registration for any of the events can be done through clicking www.dyw.scot/Up2U and each session will be recorded and made available after broadcast. We look forward to seeing our West Highland young people sign up for these informative virtual sessions!
