Calling all primary schools!
The Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Regional Groups are launching a social media campaign throughout Scotland, to make young people more aware of job roles within key sectors, as well as the skills and qualities required to succeed in these roles.
We want to encourage young people in the local area to take part in the #DYWKeyWorkers campaign, which will take place week commencing Monday 1st June 2020 and will feature a variety of sectors and job roles.
If you would like to inspire your pupils to think about jobs and careers that have been invaluable in protecting and serving our community, these activities could be the perfect opportunity. Why not get the whole class involved in our #DYWKeyWorkers activities?
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
There are two activities that pupils can get involved in:
Activity 1 - Design your own key worker
Using our template, young people can design what a key worker in their area looks like. Remember to upload completed designs week commencing Monday 1st June 2020 and tag us @DYWWestLothian
Activity 2 - Create your own key worker poem
We want to encourage young people to write their own key worker poem using our template. Remember to post completed poems on social media week commencing Monday 1st June 2020 and tag us @DYWWestLothian
The DYW Team look forward to seeing all the final designs and poems and we would like to thank you in advance for getting involved in this campaign! #DYWKeyWorkers
Food and drink has never felt so important to everyone. The impact that COVID-19 has had on every individual’s way of life has made us all much more aware of the food we eat, where it comes from, who makes it and its effect on our health and wellbeing.
Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland has amended one of its school competitions to allow pupils to take part from home and include their families in the activity.
FDF Scotland has designed a Lockdown Lunch Challenge to help young people, parents and their educators and carers better understand what the food and drink industry is all about, including; where our food ingredients come from, how they are produced and who is involved in making them.
The Challenge will also help young people understand the skills needed to help them into a great career in food and drink.
The FDF Scotland Lockdown Challenge is a fun challenge for young people (of any age), parents, carers and educators to take part in.
