SDS virtual event: helping your child with s2/3 choices

Thursday 18th February 2021

On Thursday 25 February at 6:30pm, Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is hosting an online opportunity for parents and carers to find out more about how they can help their child make their S2/3 subject choices for the Senior Phase.

As well as providing guidance on supporting children with their choices the event will also give parents and carers information about accessing a wide range of SDS support.

Careers advisers Joan Duncan and Gemma Smith will be providing expert advice for parents and carers of young people in S2 and S3.

Joan said:

“Thinking about what options to choose at school can be daunting for young people and their parents and carers. As well as this session, SDS also has a Subject Choices tool on SDS’s My World of Work website which helps pupils explore where options choices can take them.

“It gives young people and their parents and carers the opportunity to explore job profiles, industries, Foundation and Modern Apprenticeships, refine their search by what someone is most interested in and use the tool as many times as they like to find out more about different options. There are other tools to try and the more tools you try, the better career suggestions we can give.”

This virtual event will be live from 6.30pm until 7.15pm, will also have a question and answer session. To take part please register here.
