Meet the expert

Skype sessions with employers for secondary pupils. 

Bring the world of work to life in your classroom with our virtual Meet the Expert sessions. 

As part of the My World of Work Live programme, the 30-minute Skype sessions will help inspire secondary school pupils to consider careers in key sectors. 

Experts from a range of sectors will cover topics like their role and how they got there, as well as hints and tips for anyone thinking about a career in that sector.  

Pupils will also be able to interact and ask questions, giving them a chance to gain valuable insight into the role. 

Why take part?

The Curriculum for Excellence highlights the importance of linking learning to the world of work.

Meet the Expert will help you bring learning to life while developing your pupil’s understanding of the responsibilities and duties placed on employees and employers. 

After each session we’ll email useful follow-up resources like lesson inserts, job profiles and content provided by the experts.
