Firstly, on behalf of Developing the Young Workforce (DYW), thank you to you and your colleagues for your continued efforts in keeping us all safe at home during this time.
As part of the National DYW network, we are preparing to launch an awareness campaign across Scotland showcasing roles within the key sectors to make young people more aware of the types of jobs involved and what skills/qualities would be required.
We know how busy you must be at this time however we really want to tap into the energy of our key workers to push this campaign forward and inspire the next generation. The campaign which will be promoted across social media platforms will feature a variety of sectors and job roles. You can get involved in a couple of ways:
Option 1- Record a short video talking about your job role, how you got into this etc. (Click here for Video Guide)
Option 2- Send us a photograph of yourself either in uniform or in your working environment and complete the attached template. (Click here for Post/Photo Guide)
Our young people in Scotland will be the future of our workforce and we hope that this campaign inspires them into roles that have proven to be invaluable in protecting us all.
If you could let us know by Friday 15th May if you are able to support this campaign and send us on the information requested by Friday 22nd May, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, take care, stay safe and thank you.
