World of Work for Lower 4 (S1)

Lower 4 (S1) girls spend a morning in a range of workplaces including Marks and Spencer, Selex, Nairn’s Oatcakes, BAE and Ikea. These visits give them an insight into the diversity of jobs performed to keep an organisation running efficiently, safely and profitably. In the afternoon the groups reconvene at school to feed back and share their experience with one another and then participate in workshops. The girls gain an awareness of the wide range of careers available and begin to think about their own strengths and preferences.
