CAREERS EVENT 2020

The school hosted another very successful careers events on Monday 17th February which was well-attended by S3-6 pupils and their families. Over fifty stall-holders from colleges, universities and employers were represented including JP Morgan, Police Scotland, MIYO Brand, and Strathclyde University alongside a selection of Braidhurst teaching staff. This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to approach stall-holders and hold positive discussions regarding their plans and aspirations after school. The invaluable advice that each pupil received will aid them to find the right post-school destination.

PRIMARY EMPLOYABILITY WORKSHOPS

The school’s My World of Work ambassadors: Olivia, Sharleen, Emily, and Rebecca, visited our three cluster primaries on Tuesday 4th February to deliver a fun employability workshop to each of the schools. Activities delivered by the ambassadors included: an ‘Animal Me’ quiz where pupils learnt about their personalities and what animal describes them best, a fun create your own toy task, and other activities which developed communication, problem-solving, and team-work skills.
