Developing The Young Workforce

Here at Lockerbie Academy, we want all our pupils to have the skills and qualification to enter the world of work confidently and with a positive ambition to succeed.  Lockerbie Academy has wholeheartedly embraced Employability and will continue to work hard to give all pupils positive opportunities for them to be successful in their career paths. 

We work closely with an ever growing number of local businesses and have formed positive working relationships with both large and small employers within Lockerbie and the surrounding area.  

By clicking on the links, we hope you feel fully informed about the work we are doing in school and with our partners to provide our pupils, the next generation of employees, with the Employability skills needed for their successful working life.
