About Us

DYW Fife plays a key part in the delivery of the Young Person’s Guarantee.

We are employer led and it’s our priority to make it easier for employers to connect with young people in schools and colleges across Fife.

It’s a team effort to support young people to prepare for the world of work. Through DYW Fife, employers can provide inspirational opportunities for young people to help them understand and develop the skills they need to succeed.

Get involved to influence education and help shape the future workforce.

Our aims:

  • To facilitate meaningful engagement between employers and education, building relationships with our partners and networks to positively impact and engage wider communities in Fife

  • To develop employability skills, support those furthest from positive career destinations or career pathways and ignite opportunities for all of Fife’s young people to flourish in the world of work

  • To engage with stakeholders to add value to the national employability programme through DYW Scotland and improve employability for Scotland’s young people

  • Support employers to generate a sustainable pipeline of talent and skills, get closer to the next generation of Fife talent and recruit apprenticeships and trainees – all whilst building relationships in their local community

“At DYW (Fife), we remain focused on igniting opportunities for schools, businesses and young people. The insight and added value on offer for those who engage with the programme combines to connect people across the region and build a brighter future for everyone involved.
