Educational Visits and Work Experience

 

Hub South East Scotland supports educational opportunities through educational visits and work experience for under 16 year olds and 16 to 18 year olds. Targets are set for the number of visits and work placements to be provided through each project in liaison with the Lead Particpant and Construction Skills

There is commitment from Hub South East Scotland’s principal supply chain members to support this, thus opening up the opportunity for young people to experience the workplace in architects, engineers and surveyors offices. As projects go to site opportunities will be communicated through neighbouring schools and colleges.

Since our inception in 2010 we have delivered more than 4200 work placement days.

We are also keen to practice what we preach and have offered work experience opportunities within the Hub office. Read about Emma - a pupil from West Calder High who joined us to gain experience in marketing, communications and events.
