Two new websites have been launched for businesses and students in Moray to try and improve the employment chances for young people.
The Founders4Schools page and an online marketplace run by Skills Development Scotland aim to make it easier for employers and job seekers to connect.
Until now, teachers and lecturers have had to contact firms directly or through agency DYW Moray to arrange workplace sessions.
However, the new sites are aiming to streamline the process.
Sarah Baxter, manager of DYW Moray, said: “Harnessing the use of these two user-friendly websites means there is now essentially a two-stop shop which will meet the needs of employers, teachers, lecturers and young people looking for help to get them into the workplace or to access experiences relating to the working world.
“The two sites will work in parallel, and will help with providing opportunities and experiences such as career talks, workplace visits, careers fairs, mock interviews and mentoring.”
The new sites can be found online at www.founders4schools.org.uk and www.ourskillsforce.co.uk/invest-in-young-people/marketplace
