Early level - Suggested Activity

Background Notes for Teachers

This series of activities will help young people understand that in large, charitable organisations such as RZSS, a huge number of people with different skills, abilities and training are needed to ensure the smooth running and continued success of the organisation.

They will be able to understand and describe some of the jobs that people do, both at Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park and appreciate the diversity of opportunities available.

After finding out about some of the careers available at RZSS, pupils will be able to reflect on the information and then discuss and write about the job they would like to do when they leave school, college or university.
