Haddington’s Knox Academy has, for the past two years, been running Tots and Teens, an innovative in-school pre-nursery staffed partly by secondary students.
The students will typically complete 39 hours work experience, providing an opportunity to develop a range of skills including working independently, communicating and taking responsibility. A qualification is earned, from Edinburgh College, for successful completion of the course.
This short video has been made by the award-winning Knox Kid Witness News students to enable others to learn from the Knox experience of running this new development. You can read a more detailed report on the Knox Academy web site.
