Project Description

Four pupils from Glenrothes High school are currently undertaking work experience at the Scottish Deer Centre in Cupar, Fife. Each pupil chosen to carry out this work experience are pursuing a career in animal care. Each pupil has met with the education manager at the Deer Centre and organised a plan for their weekend work experience.

During their first visit they got a tour of the facilities and had in depth discussion about each of the animals in the park.

Pupils have so far engaged with the education manager at the site. During these discussions pupils outlined their aspirations and ambitions for the future. This allowed the education team to tailor a programme of work experience to suit the needs of our young learners. Pupils will work throughout the month of October to gain some valuable work experience to help fulfil their lifelong ambitions of working with animals.

Ben said,

“The experience of just being around the animals and having the interaction with an experienced animal care education manager has inspired me to do well at school and university so that I can realise my dream and work with animals. I can’t wait to come back and get more involved during the month of October”.

Erin said,

“I can’t wait to do even more at the Deer Centre, today was really good and learning about the animals was fascinating”.
