DYW School Coordinators

The main role of a DYW School Coordinator will be to support senior leaders in the school to embed the Developing the Young Workforce Strategy and other employer offers within the curriculum.

They will create and implement a structure for employer engagement which reflects the school’s demographic, regional and local DYW plans and maintain a robust network of partners within the local business community.

In doing so they support school leadership teams in fulfilling national priorities around employability and enterprise, Career Education Standard and Work Placement Standard.
