The Exploration Workshop is a free, 1-hour interactive session, designed to help your students feel more secure about their futures and build confidence in their skills.

Fitting in with the Career Education Standard and helping teachers to reach Health & Wellbeing benchmarks in Scotland for S3 and above, the Exploration Workshop is all about bringing jobs to life and helping students explore five vital transferrable skills they’ll need for future success.

It’s a teacher-led activity, where a Royal Bank of Scotland Ambassador will help students to:

      • Complete a set of industry-related tasks
      • Bring different jobs to life through interactive challenges
      • Share their own experiences of working life
      • Understand the capabilities businesses need in the future
      • Pledge to research a skill or job to start exploring the pathways ahead of them

Each activity’s based on real-life case studies, focusing on a different area of the bank and showcasing the variety of jobs on offer at Royal Bank of Scotland.
