St John’s RC High School Business & Languages event (Thursday 16 January 2020)

St John’s RC High School Business & Languages event (Thursday 16 January 2020)

Andrew Gillespie – Ace Aquatec

This year’s business and language event consisted of a range of local businesses and organisations who delivered 25-minute interactive workshops to our current S3 pupils. 

Pupils were split into groups and rotated through each of the workshops delivered by the organisations.  The intention of this experience was to enable young people to make links between the Business and languages subjects which they are studying, and to recognise the relevance of the skills which they are learning.  This enabling young people to make links between the work they are doing in school and its purpose in their future careers. 

Attending the talks and workshops enabled young people to develop a range of skills which will be essential for their future, including literacy, team working and interpersonal skills, as well as languages and business skills. 

Pupil feedback on the morning was extremely positive, overall, they found the whole experience valuable and thoroughly enjoyed working alongside local businesses.  The workshops put their leaning into context and gave them a greater awareness of the importance of studying a language alongside business and clear links to their future careers.

  • Judy and Susanna – Dundee Heritage Trust
  • Danielle – Dundee United FC
