The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) enters into a flagship business partnership with Dyce Academy.

TECA is Scotland's brand new, state-of-the-art events venue. Opening this summer, the £333 million development, being delivered by Aberdeen City Council in partnership with Henry Boot Developments, will replace the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) with 48,000 square metres of multi-purpose event space, and boasts world-class conference and exhibition halls, a superior arena, spacious hospitality boxes and a contemporary restaurant.

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. We would also like to develop leadership capacity in our young people through working with TECA. We have identified a range of activities from mock interviews to site visits that we could work on together to benefit both organisations.”

The agreements outlines the initiatives proposed between the partners including work placement, modern apprenticeships and school leaver positions. TECA will also hold mock interviews, and work inspiration activities such as a career fair and site visits.

Louise Mackie, HR Manager at TECA commented “It is 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 importance and value of this relationship is vital in assisting pupils achievement, develop their interpersonal skills and gain real life working experiences.”

The sustainable relationship is part of DYWNE (Developing the Young Workforce of North East Scotland) who will provide support and assistance as and when required. DYWNE help build meaningful partnerships between employers and education to benefit young people.
