For a second year running National Mining Museum Scotland is hosting a Careers Event for primary school pupils in schools across Midlothian!

When? 9:00-15:00 Wednesday 29th May 2024

What? We all learn differently but we can all agree that something hands-on and memorable will have a lasting impact! We want to engage the next generation in a wide variety of career pathways through inspiring and fun activities.

We are looking for companies/professionals from across Scotland to join us and offer a wide selection of industry/sector insights.

Each company/organisation will offer pupils an interactive demonstration or hands-on activity to help support their learning as well as help develop their thoughts on future careers.

Why you should get involved? 

  • Support your local community and be part of creating a lasting event.
  • Engage pupils in developing their skills for the future – support their learning journeys!
  • Network with other companies/industries participating in the event.
  • Advertisement of your company – each pupil participating will be given a goodie bag to take home which will include a list of all companies taking part on the day (with logos!), we’ll be shouting about the event and supporting companies on our social media, website, and press release.

The event is supported by MIST, MAUK, Midlothian Council’s RAiSE and Developing the Young Workforce.
