Breadalbane Academy strongly supports academic progress as well as focusing on the development of the skills for learning, life and work; our Developing the Young Workforce Programme is a vital part of this. Through offering a broad and inclusive curriculum which is enhanced through employer engagement and partnerships we believe that our young people are well prepared for success as they progress from school to tertiary education and the workplace.
A key focus at Breadalbane Academy is the development of employer engagements across all curricular areas and year groups. These have been carefully tailored to enhance the experience of our young people and to ensure that the link between learning and the real world impact of this learning is clear.
A strategic approach to the development of a robust network of workplace partnerships has been used to embed employer engagement within school. During the academic session 2017/2018 the following partners worked closely with our pupils to develop their awareness of careers and enhance employability skills across a broad range of employment themes:
Charlotte Flower Chocolates
Highland Fling Bungee
House of Bruar
Highland Perthshire Communities Land Trust
Perth Bike Shed
Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Scottish Ambulance Service
Social Enterprise Academy
