Senior pupils and their families will have the opportunity to find out more about career options after school with a view to identifying the most appropriate pathway through senior school and into the world of work, training or further study.

Representatives from:

  • Skills Development Scotland,
  • the University of the Highlands and Islands,
  • Modern Apprenticeships,
  • Construction Industry Training Board,
  • Business Gateway,
  • Highlands and Islands Enterprise,
  • science and research, education, hospitality, law, energy, health, land based industries, construction, creative arts, retail, financial services, public sector, Armed Forces, media, emergency services, information technology, human resources, social care, logistics, engineering and automotive will be in attendance.

Pupils and parents will have the chance to discuss the range of employment opportunities with representatives within these sectors and to gain insights in to the nature of their jobs and the pathways employees have followed after school to their current positions.

Gavin MacLean Head Teacher said: “We’re delighted to have so many sectors represented and think pupils and their families will find it really useful to hear about the employability skills and qualifications required in a range of employment types.  At a time of change in the employment market gaining up-to-date information in this way will be helpful to youngsters as they plan for this important next step in their lives.”

Bill Gillies Chair of the Parent Council said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for families to tap into the knowledge and experiences of a range of people working locally.  Planning for leaving school can be a little daunting for young people and families alike and one of the best ways of preparing is to be as informed and knowledgeable as possible.  Millburn’s event looks set to be first rate with so many types of employment represented.”

The event runs from 6pm – 7.15pm and the families of senior pupils are invited to attend.
