A virtual work experience portal for secondary pupils who are missing out due to pandemic restrictions has been launched by a Scots architectural and planning practice.
Halliday Fraser Munro’s team created the resource as it could not host work experience in its Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices.
The portal will also feature a competition open to children of all ages to design a building or house, and an architect will create the winning design from each age group as a 3D model on screen.
The portal can be accessed at workexperience.hfm.co.uk.
