Learning Curve has a good relationship with a large number of schools around Scotland, of which Firrhill High School in Edinburgh is just one example. Pupils from Firrhill have appeared in a number of Learning Curve productions, most recently Cav's Story as part of our e-safety range.
So when Firrhill contacted us to ask whether eight S3 pupils could come to our offices to complete a 2 day business placement, we were only too happy to oblige. The only question was, what would we do to occupy and challenge 8 young people for 2 days. There is after all only so much tea that we can drink!
We decided that the first morning should be presented as an opportunity for the Firrhill pupils to discover what it is that Learning Curve do. We have a range of roles within our organisation including film crew, software developers, admin assistants, graphic artists, content developers, sales staff and of course managers. We set the pupils up in our boardroom, and each member of staff took 10 minutes to explain their job and highlight an example of their work before giving the pupils an opportunity to ask questions.
