In collaboration with partners on the Moray Pathways consortium, the Developing the Young Worksforce (DYW) Moray team have organised an event to showcase what recruitment/upskilling opportunities and funding are currently available to Moray employers.

This virtual event is set to take place on Tuesday, January 19, from 2pm to 3.30pm and will be available to watch live on DYW Moray’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. The live session will be recorded and accessible publicly after the event.

During the event, participants will hear from a range of experts, who will explain the different opportunities and associated funding. There will also be a Q&A session at the end of the event.

Those currently expected to be speaking on the following subjects at the workshop are: Modern Apprenticeship – Jacqui Taylor, Moray College UHI; Graduate Apprenticeship – Fiona Campbell, Robert Gordon University; Funding for Apprenticeships – Jan Bruce, Skills Development Scotland; Employability Schemes – Jane Munro, Department of Work and Pensions; Kickstart – Sarah Medcraf, Moray Chamber of Commerce; MERI – Amy Cruickshank, Moray Council.

Employers do not need to be actively recruiting to attend this event, as funding and opportunities are available for current staff.

Registration is necessary to access this event and a link will be sent to watch the workshop and access any resources after it takes place.
