Aberdeen teenagers have been primed for the world of work during a special Spotlight Day.
Robert Gordon University (RGU) and North East Scotland College (Nescol) invited 60 pupils from Northfield, Lochside and Harlaw academies to take part in activities and build an understanding of possible career routes.
Tasks were designed to emulate a realistic workplace environment and sessions included building a “geek clock” which displayed the time through flashing lights in RGU’s technical engineering workshops.
There was also a practical tour of the university’s health and wellbeing facilities, including the clinical skills centre and X-ray lab.
The event also marked one year since RGU and NESCol established their Two Plus partnership, an educational initiative which helps young learners in the region by working with schools which have lower progression into university.
David Milne, principal teacher of health and wellbeing at Northfield Academy said: “The event allows pupils to see possibilities and different options they may not have thought about as career paths.
“It shows them how some of the subjects they are doing now link to their future, which helps them to plan better.”
