DYW – Virtual Event – Careers/Pathway Planning

On Thursday March 18th from 6.30-7.30pm DYW North East (Developing the Young Workforce) will be holding a free virtual event for parents/carers and young people to highlight the range of pathways on offer in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

Senior phase pupils (S4-S6) will be preparing for their next steps, whether that is to stay in education or to enter the world of work. It can be a confusing landscape and as a parent or carer, you have a leading role when your child is making decisions about their career.

The free information session will help inform you about the wide range of pathways available to young people and support them on their journey beyond school.

Hear from the following local employers and further/higher education providers who have experience in supporting young people into the workplace in a variety of different pathways.

  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Bon Accord Care
  • Balfour Beatty
  • NESCol
  • RGU
  • Tullos Training
