Learning Through Work Week


On Tuesday 17th November employees from Babcock International came to visit S6 pupils to tell them about the benefits of Modern Apprenticeships and work-based learning, as part of a nationwide week of events co-ordinated by Skills Development Scotland (SDS). The pupils got a valuable insight into what work-based learning is really like, opening their eyes to the range of apprenticeship opportunities available in Scotland across industries and in businesses of all sizes.

The pupils were given a short presentation by Darren Thomson who is a Graduate Electrical Engineer with Babcock International and got the chance to ask him questions.

One of the key purposes of creating the site was to match young people looking for jobs with employers who have apprenticeship vacancies. The site features the latest vacancies.
