Workforce for the Future: Secondary Schools

About the project

In partnership with Developing the Young Workforce, we are delivering Postcode Culture Trust-funded project Workforce for the Future. We are working with museums and schools in lower Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) areas. The project will be delivered in 8 different council areas in Scotland over two years. Pupils will work to co-create a resource with a local museum, learning about the diversity of job roles in the sector and increasing their employability skills. Working with S1 and S2 pupils who are pre-subject choices allows for flexibility in the curriculum to enable effective participation in this project. This follows on from previous successful pilot projects with P5, P6 and P7 pupils.

We are also working with an external contractor, Daydream Believers, to create a free, nationally-accessible learning resource for museums and schools to use for delivering similar projects.

Funds are raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery and awarded by Postcode Culture Trust.
