Supporting partners in Argyll and Bute

We work closely with schools across Argyll and Bute, 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 amongst other local partner organisations to embed My World of Work into their own services. This has included close ties with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) across Argyll and Bute to ensure that My World of Work is placed firmly at the heart of their organisation.
