On Monday 27 August and Tuesday 28 August the very first Dundee Traditional Building Skills event took place at City Square. This event was co-ordinated by Historic Environment Scotland and Scottish Traditional Building Forum, with local support from the DYW Dundee & Angus team. Forster Roofing, Historic Environment Scotland and Dundee & Angus College provided hands-on opportunities for pupils on the day.
Grove Academy and NCR have recently completed a project where pupils have been able to gain invaluable experiences of practical engineering. Working in partnership together, 6th year pupils and NCR staff have taken part in the 2018 MATE international ROV competition .
This week we (DYW D&A) have run a social media campaign to promote partnership work between schools/colleges and employers. During the week we have promoted some of the amazing partnerships in Dundee and Angus, presented a company and school with a partnership certificate for their great work, and shown why partnerships are so beneficial.
While most school pupils are off for their Spring Holidays Claire from the team was lucky enough to be able to spend the afternoon with Hannah and Katie from Grove Academy who joined 3rd year University of Dundee Mental Health Nursing Students at the Clinical Skills Academy, Ninewells Hospital.
