Outputs and Outcomes Eight new service proposals and improvements were developed by cross-departmental teams from the City Council. These included changes which can be implemented immediately and some which could be developed and implemented in the medium and longer term. They included: • The Young People’s Panel - including young people who are seeking work and young people in the workforce in decision making processes at all levels. • Reviewing the Recruitment and Selection process - could alternative means of reaching out to young people and enabling them to present their skills in alternative ways diversify the workforce and be more inclusive. • Friday Get Togethers and other means of supporting young people in employment - systems exist for helping students - from loans to accommodation to the student union - what can we do to enable young people manage, develop and feel connected to their work. Feedback to the question “if one good thing came out of today…” indicates that there is a determination throughout Dundee City Council to better understand young people’s experiences and to implement ideas generated over the two days. “It will be the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the next generation which will make change happen” Heather Campbell, DCC Modern Apprentice Developing the Young Workforce | Dundee City Council 7
