Talk about Careers at home!

By talking about careers with your children as early as you can, you’ll be able to help them find a job or career pathway that offers them the future they want. But it can be difficult to know where to begin – or where to find the time.

Skills Development Scotland have provided discussion guides, written by expert careers advisers and designed to mirror your child’s milestones, will provide the steps you need to approach these conversations with confidence.

From subject choices to the jobs of the future, routes to entry, to what to do when they don’t get the exam results they need – we’ve got credible, up-to-date advice on critical issues.

During the day students will have the opportunity to hear from various speakers across the global companies, take part in hands on workshops and have lots of networking opportunities.

There are lots of paid work experience opportunities up for grabs, iPads to be won and hundreds of opportunities for you to apply for.

Music Concert

Music concert

Well done to all the musicians who took part in the concert on Monday and Tuesday.

The standard of performance was excellent and it was nice to see a clip from the school show which takes place in June.

Thank you to the audience who attended. We raised £285 for friends of anchor.
