NESCoL – Altens Experience and Career Day

NESCoL would like to invite S4, S5 and S6 pupils who are considering taking their next steps into an Automotive, Construction or Engineering, course/industry, to join them at the Altens Experience & Careers Day on Wednesday 20th March. This is recommended to those pupils who have made an application, or intend to make an application, for a full time course in August 2019.

Pupils will receive a tour of the campus and introductory taster sessions across the curriculum areas of Automotive Maintenance and Repair, Construction, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering, which we hope they will find helpful in their progression planning.

School sessions will be as follows (you would be required only to attend either the morning or afternoon session.)

Morning Session 9.45am – 12.15pm
Afternoon Session 12.45pm – 3.00pm

Please let your Guidance teacher know if you would like to attend.

Pupils are also welcome to attend our Open Evening 4.00pm – 6.00pm after school hours alongside members of the general public to enquire about progression routes.

Law – Work Experience Opportunity


Brodies LLP is a founding member of PRIME, a pioneering initiative by the UK’s leading law firms to encourage greater diversity in the legal profession by offering quality work experience and continuing support to young people from less privileged backgrounds.

They are committed each year to offering students aged 13-17 the opportunity to take part in a structured work experience programme that is co-ordinated and delivered by Brodies staff representing departments across our business.

The programme delivers a minimum of 30–35 hours of work experience and is designed to give young people involved an insight into all aspects of the business, not just law but also our professional support services, such as IT, Finance, HR and Marketing.

They would like to extend an invite out to 4th year and 5th year students who may be looking to study law at university. Students applying must be entitled to free school meals OR be the first in their family to go to university. The Aberdeen week will be held in our Union Grove office and will take place on Monday 1 July to Thursday 4 July.

If students wish to attend they must fill in the below questionnaire which will take around 10-15 minutes. Successful students will be contacted directly. Please also see your Guidance teacher and let them know you are applying.
