South Ayrshire Council’s Work Out! programme, gives pupils, aged from 14 to 18, a fantastic opportunity to experience the world of work and develop practical skills and experience across a range of jobs.
This programme is unique in terms of the partnership approach it takes with local businesses who work along with the Council. Together they provide valuable work experience opportunities for pupils through a one day a week placement throughout the school year. This ensures that young people have the opportunity to access a diverse range of work experience such as childcare, property maintenance, greenkeeping, grounds maintenance, hairdressing, beauty, health and social care, hospitality, libraries and museums, and sports and leisure.
