Case study
Scotland - Deanston Primary School

Alan Atkinson, from Deanston Primary School near Doune, set up a Founders4Schools encounter for young people in his school from P4 - P7.

It was an interactive and informative way of completing a unit of work and engaging with the local business community. The encounter also covered elements of both A Curriculum for Excellence and the Career Education Standard.

  • I can talk to employers about myself and about their workplace.
