“ The workshop was highly motivational and really got the children thinking about how good group work skills translate into the work environment. ”
The workshops are fun game or competition-based exercises designed to increase pupils’ awareness of the skills and attitudes needed for the world of work. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is to use employee volunteers not connected to the school, working in collaboration with pupils.
Following the training session we will spend the rest of the day operating the workshop with two class/year groups from the school. There is no PVG requirement to take part, a project leader from Business in the Community Scotland and a member of schools teaching staff will be with you at all times.
“I thought the event was excellent. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves but also understood the purpose of the exercise and were talking afterwards about how it was like having their own business.” - Scarlett Palmer, Castleview Primary School teacher
