Supporting partners in South Lanarkshire

We work closely with schools across South Lanarkshire, 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 services. This has included working with South Lanarkshire College, to ensure that My World of Work is placed firmly at the heart of their organisation.

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