WHS Records Record Numbers In ‘Positive Destinations’ & Leads The Way With DYW In Caithness.
Wick High School is proud to be an active participant in the Scottish Government & Education Scotland initiative, Developing the Young Workforce (DYW).
Developing the Young Workforce is a seven-year programme (2014-2021) that aims to better prepare children and young people aged 3–18 for the world of work.
The headline aim of Developing the Young Workforce is to reduce youth unemployment by 40% by 2021.
DYW recently published their September E-Newsletter which showcases the superb work that we at Wick High School have been a part of. See a copy of the newsletter HERE.
We were also recently congratulated on record numbers of our young people leaving school to positive destinations in further education, training or employment. As reported on our Facebook page recently, on the Highland Council website and in the local press, Wick High School has performed, for the first time in its history, above the Highland and National averages in this respect by ensuring that in session 2015/16 95% of our school leavers go on to secure a positive destination.
As you can imagine we are immensely proud of this achievement and is testament to the excellent work of our staff and community partners.
