Today, we are very excited to launch our brand new teaching resource and online careers event – Working in Wellies.
This is a supporting resource following on from the successful ‘Women in Wellies’ event held by LOST in partnership with Dumfries House and RHET (Royal Highland Educational Trust) and the subsequent ‘How To’ toolkit resource. The event and toolkit are funded and supported by Education Scotland’s Enhancing Professional Learning in STEM Grants Programme through the Scottish Government STEM Education and training Strategy.
Our online event aims to engage and connect teachers and students with professionals working across a variety of STEM and rural sectors. Through a structured lesson plan and by using our suite of resources including an interactive pupil passport and 2 minute career talk videos, teachers can support pupils to explore the different roles and career pathways, consider how these could apply to their lives and ambitions and begin to make informed choices about their future.
Find out more about the event and how you to carry it out with your class by visiting the Working in Wellies Careers Event page.
