S1 Parents as Partners DYW Event

All pupils in S1 participated in a Developing the Young Workforce skills based event today, with the help of parents as partners. Pupils were tasked with trying to find out the occupation of each of our guest candidates by utilising a variety of evidence. Each pupil had the opportunity to  interview a candidate, select information from job profiles and to experience virtual  workplaces using VR headsets. The pupils certainly enjoyed visiting the virtual workplaces, allowing them to put into context the skills and job profiles they were hearing about. The overall aim of the event was to highlight skills for learning, life and work; with all pupils highlighting the skills they had utilised themselves during the event. More photographs here.
