Meaningful Work Experience Award – James Pirie & Son Butcher

How was the partnership formed?


This is another partnership which was formed between a school and an employer meeting to discuss what potential there would be for partnership working.

Webster’s High school recognised one of their current S4 pupils was at risk of disengaging from school, so met with James Pirie & Son Butcher to discuss further. After some discussion a work placement was created which would work around classes.
