School and Employer Partnerships
DYW brokers partnerships between schools and employers. These are intended to support meaningful and productive school/employer working relationships. These partnerships build on good practice and sustainable links with employers. They should bring mutual benefit, and evolve to respond to local economic needs and skills gaps.
For schools, partnerships with employers provide a great opportunity to access the skills, knowledge, experience and support of an employer and their workforce. This resource can enhance learning and teaching across the curriculum and help prepare young people for the world of work. Investing time in building partnerships with employers can provide a range of benefits for young people.
