Disablity Youth Transitions Services (DYTS)

Disablity Youth Transitions Services (DYTS) work across East Lothian specifically with disabled young people (from aged 15 - 20) who have the desire and ability to move into a positive destination post school (employment, education, training or volunteering).

They also support pupils through the transition period, post school and accept referrals for anyone with a disability up until 20th birthday.

Their Employability Support Officers will:

  • Work in schools with individual young people with the aim to identifying a positive destination on leaving school.
  • Engage with and support young people on leaving school moving into employment, education, training or volunteering.
  • Engage with and support young people who have already left school in transition to employment, education, training or volunteering.
  • Offer 1-1 and group activities through an Activity Agreement
  • Arrange Work Experience and Volunteering Placements
  • Refer to Partner Agencies for specific Training and Employment initiatives
