Ayr Academy Careers Event

Ayr Academy hosted a career event for S2/3 pupils to support them with career information during the period they are making their option choices for next year. Many local businesses across a number of sectors provided their support by engaging with the young people about their business and discussing routes and pathways. The feedback from the young people was overwhelmingly positive, with many returning home to discuss their new ambitions that they had discovered at the event. Pupils will use their booklets that they completed whilst circulating the businesses to help them to determine areas of possible interest that they may wish to pursue, making their option choices more targeted and meaningful. As a new DYW Coordinator in post, this event was made possible and successful largely by the support given in the lead up by the Chambers of commerce.
