The Background

We are an employer led board which aims to lower youth unemployment.  By creating stronger links between businesses and education we seek to provide more opportunities for young people to be better prepared for the world of work.


Nationally, Developing the Young Workforce is a government funded project made up of 21 regional groups across Scotland.


DYW Moray was established in April 2016, to provide focused support and guidance to Employers and Educational Establishments in Moray.  Click on the links below for further guidance on what opportunities are available.
