ASN Sector Meeting
Our sector meeting days are about bringing members together from the same sector so that you have the opportunity to engage and discuss with peers from different authorities and share any concerns and best practice suggestions that you have.
These events are deliberately kept small to allow for the discussions to be shared throughout the group. Not only are these events FREE to attend, AHDS will pay your travel expenses.
We want to create the day that you will find most beneficial – tell us on the booking form what you would like to discuss at your meeting and we will do what we can to include this.
The afternoon will be led by the Scottish Government with its focus on Developing the Young Workforce Groups.
The Scottish Government supports 21 Regional Developing the Young Workforce Groups covering the whole of Scotland, as part of its Youth Employment Strategy. The Groups are charged with improving links between employers and schools. Part of the role of the Groups is to ensure equality of opportunity for all young people. We are keen that the Groups establish partnerships between employers and all schools. For the coming financial year Groups are specifically charged with establishing partnerships between employers and ASN schools (and Units) to help ensure that all young people have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. We would therefore be particularly interested in improving connections between the DYW Groups and ASN schools (and Units) across Scotland.
