Pass on your knowledge of your sector through workshops, talks, workplace visits, or placements.
This type of opportunity helps pupils and students learn a range of skills around employability, enterprise and soft skills like tips on how to find and keep a job. You can also outline what is required to work in your industry and the entry routes available.
An inspiration event helps bring industries to life. Offer site visits to your workplace, deliver workshops on specific jobs or provide young people with a real life business challenge to solve. Inspire young people to explore their career options and raise their aspirations.
Explain the job opportunities and routes into your industry at career events. Offer work placements to provide real-life experience of your sector or hold sessions with parents, carers and teachers to give them more knowledge of Scotland’s job landscape.

Marketplace helps build young people’s job readiness and increases their career options. At the same time, employers can help shape young talent, address skills gaps and source their future workforce.
We created Marketplace to improve engagement between employers and education. It’s been developed in partnership with Scotland’s regional Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce (DYW) groups who identified the need to help young people have greater awareness of the career options available to them.
We’ve created a support page with a full list of what you can offer and local contacts if you need help.
