AHR is committed to the DYW agenda having provided two work experience placements every month for the past two years. The time invested in these young people is invaluable and they have benefited as a company from the ideas generated by school pupils during their week-long placements.
Director, Richard Blair: “We are delighted to be announced as DYW Glasgow’s Employer of the Month. We have been offering work placements for over ten years now, initially only one young person at a time but more recently, we have offered two placements. Having two pupils not only helps them as they can learn from each other but it really works for us a business. One of our main areas of work is designing schools so we are able to learn from what the younger generation see as their ultimate classroom’. Working with schools also helps with recruitment and it adds to our community benefit”
