Developing the Young Workforce – West Highland success throughout Scottish Apprenticeship Week

Throughout Scottish Apprenticeship Week, 5-9th March, the DYW WH team travelled the length and breadth of the West Highland area, as events promoting and celebrating Scottish apprenticeships took place in all nine partnership schools.  Along with Skills Development Scotland and West Highland College UHI,  they worked closely with each school to ensure their event matched their priorities and that local businesses met with the year groups highlighted by each school.  The events stemmed from: whole school assemblies to class talks, presentations to inspiring stories shared by the apprentices themselves.

 

The support from local organisations, the commitment of so many apprentices in attendance, the hard work of school staff and most importantly, the engagement and questions from the young people themselves, ensured the week had richness and diversity in discussion, and in learning, which was a privilege to be part of.
