Developing the Young Workforce Regional Groups
Most Local Authorities in Scotland now have Regional Groups established to support the Developing the Youngforce (DYW) agenda. 
The Regional Groups are led and facilitated by local Chambers of Commerce in most Authorities.  They work in partnership with the Local Authority, Schools, Colleges and young people to help employers shape their future workforce and help better prepare young people for the world of work.
