Parents & Carers – Please support our Work Experience programme

We urgently need help to find work experience placements for our S4 pupils in November.  As things stand, we have only been offered just 40 places this year – only enough for one in every five S4 pupils.

Could you, or your employer, help by offering a work experience placement to a Broughton High School S4 Pupil?  Ideally, the placement would be scheduled in the week 5 to 9 November 2018, but other times in the year will also be possible; placements can be anything from a few half-days to a full week.

We are especially keen to find placements in the career areas shown below; these were highlighted by pupils as being of specific interest.

Employers offering placements are required by Edinburgh Council to register with theGateway organisation,  in advance.  This process can take up to 6 weeks, so we ideally need to identify placement opportunities by 24 September 2018.

If you can help or would like more information, please email Broughton Works Parents Group via

Thank you in anticipation,

Aletta Ritchie, Graeme Robertson, Jenny Wilson
