Marketplace Launch: Employer Information

In conjunction with Skills Development Scotland, DYW are launching the platform, Marketplace, a tool designed to make it easier for employers to connect with schools to inform education professionals about what they can offer in terms of school talks, industry tours, activities and more!

Marketplace: Purpose and Benefits

Marketplace is an online tool connecting schools and colleges with business. As an employer, tell us what you can offer, such as a talk, workshop or school visit.

Here’s some of the benefits:

  • Young people will benefit from your knowledge and expertise – you can help them develop the attitude and skills employers need
  • You can inspire young people to work for you or in your sector
  • You can raise awareness of who you are and what you do
  • It’s great for staff development. Employees involved will gain a sense of achievement in helping young people.
