S2 Parents Event – Tuesday 28th February 7pm – 8pm

As a parent/guardian of a pupil who is about to make the first important career decision around subject choice, you may have many questions and be unsure about how you can help your child make the right choices for now.

This isn’t always easy, but it is important! Research has shown that your role as No1 influencer on your child’s future career choices means that it is vital that you have answers to the questions you might have about the opportunities that are open to your child in their future.

Working in partnership with your school, Skills Development Scotland would like to invite you along to an information evening about careers options and the many choices that your child has.

On the night you will have the chance to hear from Careers Advisers on the support and opportunities that are available to your child and hear about the resources that Skills Development Scotland has to help you support them.

We would therefore like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us on Tuesday 28th February 7pm – 8pm at Wishaw Sport Centre, Alexander Street, Wishaw. ML2 0HQ
