Subject Choice Event for Parents and Carers of S2 Pupils


Barrhead Foundry
Wednesday 22 January between 5pm and 8pm.

The event is an opportunity for the parents and carers of S2 pupils to find out more about the work that SDS do with school pupils and how they support them to develop Career Management Skills.  Parents are a key influencer on a young person’s decision making. There will be speakers on number of topics to help you to support them with their subject choices and decision making.

There will be 4 short talks

  • What are Career Management Skills?
  • Today’s Labour Market
  • My World of Work
  • The Apprenticeship Family

and these will be presented at two slots – 5.00 pm and 6.30 pm – so that parents can attend whichever ones suit best.

In addition to the above, there will be SDS Careers Advisers available for you to speak to individually.

Please email Barrhead@sds.co.uk or phone: 0141 488 1591 to let them know if you would like to come along to the event.
