LOCAL parents and guardians are being encouraged to get involved in the national #DYWChildtoWork campaign.

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Moray, are working with 20 other DYW regional groups to inspire young people and encourage them to consider a variety of careers.

And while being schooled at home, who better to do that but parents and guardians?

DYW Moray manager Sarah Baxter said: "We wanted to use this as an opportunity to encourage anyone who can get involved with Bring your Child to Work Day (Home Edition!).

"Involving young people in what their parents and guardians do during their working day will increase young people’s awareness of the world of work."

DYW is a government-funded project made up of 21 regional groups across Scotland which aims to provide opportunities for young people to be better prepared for the world of work, and lower youth unemployment.

Employer and service school liaison, Aimee Stephen, said : "We want to inspire our young people in Moray. It’s really easy to get involved - all people have to do is, post a photograph of yourself and your children working at home on Thursday, April 23.

"Use the hashtag #DYWChildtoWork and tag @DYWMoray. Alternatively, send your photo to info@dywmoray.co.uk and we will share it on your behalf."
