Supporting partners in Dundee

We work closely with schools across Dundee, 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 Dundee & Angus College to trial ways to increase capacity building with staff to promote career management skills.

Contact your local Partner Development and Integration Executive Karen Watson or visit the partner area of My World of Work.
