A new multi-million-pound concert venue has entered a flagship business partnership with an Aberdeen secondary school.
Dyce Academy is to work with The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA), which is being delivered by Aberdeen City Council in partnership with Henry Boot Developments, and is due to open this summer.
The initiatives proposed between the partners includes work placements, modern apprenticeships and school leaver positions.
TECA will also hold mock interviews and work inspiration activities such as a career fair and site visits.
Lesley Adam, head teacher at Dyce Academy, said: “We hope to be able to work with TECA to widen business opportunities available to our staff and pupils through curriculum links and career opportunities.
“Pupils engaging with an organisation as large as TECA and on our doorstep may allow us to give them bespoke work experience in a diverse range of areas within the organisation.”

Louise Mackie, HR manager at TECA, said: “It’s a great opportunity to be involved with Dyce Academy, and invest in the next generation.
“With opening TECA this summer, we will have a range of exciting new opportunities, and we hope to increase the development of enterprise in education with the support of professional and technical personnel resources.”
The £333 million development will replace the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) when it opens later this year.
