At Braidhurst we work hard to raise the aspirations of our young people, making sure they leave school with the right qualifications and attributes to move into a destination of their choice.
Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) is a seven-year programme (2014-2021) that aims to better prepare children and young people aged 3–18 for the world of work. It has a focus on improving work experience, careers information, advice and guidance and providing greater access to vocational learning.
