Developing the Young Workforce (DYW)

​Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) builds on the foundations already in place through Curriculum for Excellence and is relevant in the Broad General Education (BGE) from early years, through the senior phase and beyond. It contributes to the development of the four capacities, makes full use of the four contexts of the curriculum, and addresses each of the entitlements. One example is the entitlement for all children and young people to experience opportunities to develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.

DYW strengthens the need for collaboration and partnership in the design and planning of the curriculum in localities and regions. Partners include Skills Development Scotland, local and school based staff, regional DYW employer groups, colleges and universities, and community learning and development (CLD).
