Harlaw parents of pupils in S4-S6 are invited to attend the next DYW event which will focus on the Apprenticeship family. This is on Wednesday the 6th March and is being held at the Chamber office from 5.30 – 8pm. You can see the detail of the event and book on for free on EventBrite here https://www.dyw.org.uk/events/scottish-apprenticeship-week-scotlands-biggest-parents-evening
This is part of the wider national DYW regional groups & SDS initiative to hold the Biggest Parents Evening across Scotland focussed on the apprenticeship family during Scottish Apprenticeship Week (SAW). We are working in collaboration with SDS, NESCol, the 2 Local Authorities, RGU, Aberdeen University and other training providers to deliver this event. It is targeted primarily at parents of pupils in S4-S6 but also employers who want to come and understand more about the 3 types of apprenticeships and pathways.
Steve Petrie, Chair of DYWNE, will be doing some opening remarks and then we will have short presentations from 3 apprentices from each of Foundation, Modern and Graduate. It will be very informal and then the focus will be on networking with the ‘providers’ who will all have a stand with details on support and provision and be able to answer questions about pathways. There will also be a range of material focussed on parents and employers (these are also downloadable on the above link to the event).
Please book a place and come along to the event with your child to find out more about these opportunities.
