Supporting partners in Edinburgh

We work closely with schools across the City of Edinburgh, supporting the My World of Work aspects of the School Partnership Agreements. Your local Partnership 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
