At Ratho Primary School, we want to teach all our children about the range of positive destinations open to them when they leave our school. Our developing Scotland’s Young workforce programme aims to address this and the skills needed in a range of careers.
This program is called Local Links as the themes reflect local employment opportunities in the Ratho area.
This is a whole school approach where each year group has a world of work theme that is used as a focus for learning. The children are taught about the variety of careers and skills required in that particular theme.
