To ask the Scottish Government what support and resources it provides to schools to encourage and develop relationships with employers, businesses and further educational establishments in their area.
Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 8 March 2017
A wide range of support and resources have been made available through our national education partners to assist schools in working with colleges, employers and other partners as part of implementing the recommendations of Developing the Young Workforce.
We continue to establish employer led DYW Regional Groups, to encourage and support employers to work with their local schools and colleges, the latest group being Argyll & Bute that I launched in Lochgilphead last Wednesday.
