Aimed at S4 pupils and above, the Skills Scotland event series will be held across venues in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen in October and November.

The events aim to inspire young people about their future careers and make them aware of the opportunities available to them after education.


The conferences will feature Get Skilled stands, allowing students to get hands-on and learn about different industries available to them. Each stand represents a different career sector, to try and promote the wide variety of options available to visitors.

There will also be an apprenticeship theatre, where talks and seminars about apprenticeships, led by exhibitors, will take place. The careers hub area will allow visitors to speak with companies at the event, and gain some expert advice on careers, interviews,  volunteering and even starting your own business.

The live news board will provide the opportunity to find out about current vacancies within the exhibiting companies – a great way to get ahead of the competition!

Exhibitors will include NHS Scotland, BAE Systems, JP Morgan, Police Scotland and the Scottish Government, demonstrating the diversity of routes into employment available after education.
