Come and have a chat

Our information stand will be at the Skills Scotland events below. These events are for pupils exploring their career options when they leave school. If you’re a pupil (or the guardian of one) speak to a teacher to see if your school is attending. There, you’ll be able to talk face-to-face with people who can explain the different types of roles available and the many ways to start a new career in Early Learning and Childcare.
