Developing the Young Workforce

Our DYW and Employability Team are an integral part of our school, ensuring that our young people achieve a positive destination on leaving school. Their aims are:

  • To build trusting relationships with FARE and the DYW Programme, challenge negative attitudes and behaviours whilst motivating individuals to retain focus.
  • To undertake 1-1 goal setting interviews and reviews.
  • To deliver training in group settings using a range of learning materials accommodating a range of learning styles.
  • To maintain up to date knowledge of the employment sector for young people/adults and pre- employment training provision that may be needed.
  • To provide application support, personal statements, college and apprenticeship workshops.

Digital World - Inspiring young people to choose a career in technology.

Research shows that basic digital skills are needed for almost every job, from farming (using software to maintain livestock records) through to car mechanics. However, the level of skills and understanding required is increasing fast.  The Digital World Website can help young people find the most up-to-date careers information on our rapidly changing world of work. There's a digital career for everyone. It doesn't matter whether you're already thinking about a career in digital technology, or whether you're still unsure about your options. It could also be games development or coding, cyber, healthcare or tourism. 

Young people can find out what skills and qualifications they need for a variety of digital roles.
