Marketplace: Connecting Schools and colleges with employers

There’s a new, easy way for schools and colleges to connect with employers – Marketplace.

Marketplace is a simple, easy to use online tool. Employers register an interest in working with education by offering talks, work place visits or placements.

Schools and colleges can then make the connection via the My World of Work website. There’s no obligation, and it’s free of charge.

The benefits:

  • Identify opportunities and inspire future careers
  • learn about employers’ expectations, building young people’s awareness and job readiness
  • employers will share their knowledge and expertise
  • build long-lasting relationships with the business community

Marketplace is delivered by Skills Development Scotland and Developing the Young Workforce (DYW).
