F4S: Teacher Industry Insights Event⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

What is a Teacher Industry Insights event? 
Bring industry insights into the classroom by offering sessions to teachers. These could be in the classroom or workplace. This is an opportunity for teachers to understand the motivations and drivers of industry sector employers. A fantastic opportunity for dialogue between professionals.

What is the impact of a Teacher Industry Insight Event?
Teacher Industry Insight Events are a useful way of cross referencing the world of the classroom with that of industry to compare experiences and work towards preparing our young people for successful futures.

“Progression and development in many aspects of health and wellbeing will depend upon the stage of growth, development and maturity of the individual, upon social issues and upon the community context. Teachers and other practitioners in planning together will take account of these factors, ensuring that experiences are relevant and realistic for the child or young person in his or her circumstances. Particularly within experiences and outcomes which span more than one level, careful planning will be required to ensure appropriate pace and coverage, and teachers and other practitioners will need to decide when and how the experiences and outcomes are introduced. The planning arrangements within which local authorities, schools and teachers work must ensure that these decisions are taken in the best interests of each child and young person and take account of his or her social and personal circumstances as necessary.”
