All businesses, leaders and managers are urged to get involved in a new campaign that aims to give Fife’s young people the possible best chance of a rewarding job in the future.


Fife’s Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Board, a business-led partnership that represents a wide range of employers – from small enterprises to multi-nationals, is launching the campaign to raise awareness about the range of programmes that businesses can access, to support the development of our future workforce.


The Developing the Young Workforce scheme aims to reduce youth unemployment by 40% by 2021 by bringing together schools, colleges and employers to provide young people with work-based learning.


DYW Fife is asking all employers to take part in at least one of the programmes for businesses outlined in our new brochure.


Reasons to get involved:

  • Inspire young people to work for your company, or sector
  • Give young people work experience
  • Develop employees through supporting young people
  • Get a fresh perspective on business challenges
  • Market your business to a future workforce and develop young talent


Complete our form to identify the programmes that your company would like to support. Your details will only be used to contact you in regard to Developing the Young Workforce and will not be passed to a third party.
