Supporting partners in the Outer Hebrides

We work closely with schools across the Outer Hebrides, 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 local partner organisations across the Islands to embed My World of Work into their services. This has included partners delivering employability services to ensure My World of Work is place firmly at the heart of what they deliver.
