Job, Education and Training (JET) Academy

The JET Academy is a work-based learning programme. It is for pupils in the senior phase of high school. It combines school education with vocational training and real-life work experience.

You will

  • work towards a National Qualification in Employability as well as your National 4s and 5s
  • have a full day's work experience placement each Friday from September to April.

Speak to your depute head or guidance teacher to take part in JET.

Christmas leavers

If you are a Christmas leaver, you can have a full-time extended work experience placement with an employer in the city. This is from August until Christmas, instead of going to school.

You will take part in employability training sessions before starting your work experience.

Near the end of the programme, we will help and support you decide your next steps.
