Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is encouraging young people in Angus to ‘start their journey’ – into the world of work or training.

School leavers and unemployed people aged 16-24 are invited to come along to a careers and employability event in Montrose on Tuesday 20 June.

SDS trainee careers adviser Lucy Grundon said: “The aim of the event is to let young people in the area find out more about their options. They may be unemployed, or leaving school or college and unsure about which direction to take next. They can start that journey locally and find out about all the opportunities and options that are available.”

There will be a number of training providers at the free event in the YMCA, 98 Murray Street, including Barnardos, Rathbone, DEAP, Volunteer Action Angus and the Princes Trust.

Careers advisers will also be on hand to give information about SDS services.


Full details about the event – which runs from noon until 3pm - is available on SDS’s Angus Facebook page, by calling 01241 433 000 or visiting the Angus centre at 61 Marketgate, Arbroath.

Careers information, advice and guidance is also available on SDS’s web service My World of Work and about Modern, Graduate and Foundation Apprenticeships at

SDS is Scotland’s careers service, with careers advisers working from its careers centres, community premises and in every state secondary school across Scotland.
