S3 – Work Placement Suspended
As a result of the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation and official advice about taking steps to minimise the risk of infection, the Health & Safety Unit at Aberdeenshire Council – backed by the E&CS Senior Management Team – has advised that the work placement programme should be suspended with immediate effect from Thursday 19th March and until further notice.
Unfortunately what this means is work experience placements arranged for S3 pupils in May will NOT be going ahead.
I will be contacting companies and organisations to advise them accordingly.
Thank you for your understanding.
