Widening Access/DYW lesson plans

Start talking about college, university and apprenticeships with your pupils.

Introduce your P6 and P7 pupils to the different routes they can take to a career with our lesson plans.

In line with the Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Strategy and the recommendations from the Commission for Widening Access, the lessons will introduce your pupils to the idea of further and higher education and apprenticeships.

Your pupils will also be encouraged to think about their skills and career aspirations.  

The lessons:

  • Have been developed in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the University of Glasgow Widening Participation team and Glasgow City Council
  • Have been developed in consultation with primary school teachers
  • Are linked to Career Management Skills, Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes and the Career Education Standard
  • Include lesson plans, teacher guidance notes, presentations, handouts and suggested follow-up activities
