A new work experience campaign has been launched by a Moray organisation.

DYW Moray is an agency that focuses on getting young people in the region into work  by linking young people with educators and employers.

Its latest initiative is an online campaign that looks to ensure hundreds of work experience placements in Moray are taken.

Sarah Baxter, the service manager for DYW Moray, said she was keen that young people and their parents be made aware of the opportunities available.

“There are many opportunities for placements in a wide range of sectors across Moray, but it’s unclear whether students and their families know about them,” she said.

“We cannot stress enough how valuable work experience can be for a young person who is progressing through school.

“Further education providers and employers do not just take in to account exam results, they also look at what extra a young person has done to make them work ready and having a work experience placement on your CV can really help.”
