The DYW Skills Academy provides young people with the insight, knowledge and skills they need to build their confidence and prepare for the world of work. Through a blend of online Digital Resources, interactive Employer Sessions and One to One Support young people can explore key themes on the world of work, engage with a range of employers and apply their learning to develop their employability skills.
