World of Work Day

 Skills for learning, life and work are a national priority in education so on Wednesday 17th June  we arranged for Morgan Sindall   employees to come along to St Machan's and talk to P5-7 about their jobs.  Our visiting professionals were  - 

 

Fraser Maxwell – assistant quantity surveyor

 

Eilidh Galbraith – business development / marketing

 

Lauren Berrie – trainee estimator

 

Alison Ward - CITB – construction careers

 

Brian Hamilton – Scott Bennett Associates - civil and structure engineering  

 

Bruce Brebnar - Anderson Bell + Christie -  architect

 

Reids UK - David Henderson – quantity surveyor

 

Julie Hillhouse – Altro Flooring - sales consultant

 

Lindsey McNaughton – hub West Scotland – community benefits

 

The children went round in groups and interviewed each professional asking them questions like "What do you like about your job?"  and "What qualifications or training did you need to get your job?".  We hope that this event has given our young people a taste of the world of work and got them thinking about possible future careers they may be interested in.
