Request For Work Experience/Internship Opportunities

We strive to provide all of our pupils with the best educational experiences within school and to fully prepare them for life beyond school.  This is particularly important given the very difficult economic climate that our youngsters will face.  Curriculum for Excellence also requires schools to work more closely with local partners to help to equip our youngsters with the skills for learning, skills for work and skills for life.

 

As part of this preparation for the workplace, we would like to be able to offer our pupils in S5/6 the opportunity to take part in long term work placements or internships from June 2012.  Please contact Mrs Dobson, DHT, if you think you might be able to offer one or more of our pupils the opportunity to work with you in your place of work for one or two afternoons per week, or if you would simply like to find out more about the proposed scheme.  Contact should be made using admin@portobello.edin.sch.uk
