SkillsScotland comes to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow

Scottish Careers Week CIAG

SDS will join employers, training providers and education at SkillsScotland this November. The national event returns following a successful two dates in Glasgow last year and will return to Aberdeen and Edinburgh for 2023.

With a wide range of Further Education and Higher Education as well as industry exhibitors on hand, the events are suitable for all senior phase pupils who will have the opportunity to explore different career paths, get advice from experts, speak to employers - including Coca-Cola, Scottish Power and Diageo - and find out about the latest job opportunities, including apprenticeships.

SDS careers advisers will be there to support young people on the main information point at the event. Complementing them will be apprentices from different employers, there to give pupils their first-hand experience of work-based learning.

School groups should register ahead of the events. Parents and carers planning to attend with their young person separately can also register ahead of visiting. More information including how to register is available on the SkillsScotland site.

Please note that funded travel bursaries for schools are available through the event organisers, Optimus Education.
