Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) in Carronhill School
According to Education Scotland, Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) is one of the policy drivers for Scottish Education. It is a seven-year programme that aims to prepare children and young people aged 3-18 for the world of work. One of the ambitions of DYW is that educational establishments and employers work together to equip young people with skills and knowledge.
In Summer 2019, Carronhill School set up a business partnership with What’s For Tea Tonight farm shop. Through this partnership we hope to give the young people hand-on experiences of farming in the field, developing skills in tending crops and caring for animals. Carronhill is the first ASN school in Aberdeenshire to have a business partnership and all involved are looking forward to a productive partnership.
