First ever national careers event in Gaelic for parents and carers
Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is offering its first ever national webinar in Gaelic to help parents and carers of pupils considering learning, or currently studying the language.
The virtual session (Wednesday 8 February at 6:30pm) will share information on Scotland’s career service as well as highlighting the benefits of studying Gaelic for future jobs.
Derek MacKenzie, Gaelic Development Officer with SDS, said: “This is the first time we have delivered an online event for Gaelic speakers across the whole of Scotland. Previous events have targeted specific local areas with a high percentage of Gaelic speakers.
“This session will give parents and carers of P7 to S3 pupils, right across the country, advice on the huge array of career opportunities that are available in Gaelic.
“There are key employment areas where Gaelic can be so beneficial, most notably in education, including childcare and early years; the arts and creative sectors; translation services and language development, and of course tourism and hospitality.”
