Supporting partners in West Lothian

We work closely with schools across West Lothian, 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 supporting staff in West Lothian Council and West Lothian College to build links from their websites to My World of Work, helping signpost to online careers information and advice.

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