Supporting partners in Aberdeenshire

We work closely with schools across Aberdeenshire, supporting the My World of Work aspects of the School Partnership Agreements. Your local Partner Development and Integration Executive can help with:

  • Delivery of the successful My World of Work School Ambassador programme
  • Raising awareness and building capacity amongst teachers to use all the online resources available, including the recently developed Lesson Inserts
  • Developing new Lesson Inserts. A simple way to link the curriculum with careers

We've also organised update and awareness sessions for other local partner organisations including as Aberdeen Foyer. We provide after care and follow-up sessions to ensure the efficient embedding of My World of Work in their services. This has included close ties with Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in Aberdeenshire to ensure that My World of Work is placed firmly at the heart of their organisation.
