DYW North East hosted an employer focused event last week to help businesses discover how they can tap into young talent and build a pipeline of employees for the future.

Throughout the evening, employers heard how local businesses, large and small, are currently embracing a variety of opportunities to engage with young people in the region to develop their skills and knowledge and open their eyes to the world of work.

The free information evening was held at The Village Hotel Club, Kingswells and included presentations from Aker Solutions, Proserv and Clark IT followed by an interactive Q&A session, extensive networking opportunities and a chance for local employers to speak directly to the DYW team, training providers and education teams from across the region.

The evening also provided an opportunity to learn more about the new additions to the apprenticeship family.

Are you keen to provide opportunities for young people to develop their skills and gain real work experience, even while still at school? If you missed the event and would like to find out more, please email
