Overview

The S1 year group at Aberdeen Grammar got to grips with Scotland's growth sectors at a recent event supported by multiple employers from across the region. The pupils developed skills for learning and work by participating in a range of themed, interactive activities.

Results and effectiveness

Pupils experienced the world of work through employer-led presentations and practical guided activities. They tackled the tasks with enthusiasm, demonstrating both their individual capabilities and effective teamworking.

Additional benefits

Pre-event activities and the use of log books meant that pupils made the most of their experiences on the day; they captured individual learning points and created a record of the skills they developed.

“I really enjoyed the day and especially liked all the hands-on tasks that the dentists got us to do. Some of them were really tricky!”
