Advice on talking career plans

Children imagining their future careers as builders, doctors, police officers, nurses, firemen and chefs

Thinking about your child’s future but not sure how to discuss the world of work with them? 

Parents and carers are the main influence on young people’s learning and career plans. 

But for those unsure how to raise the issue, a free webinar on Thursday 27 January will offer top tips.

‘How to have meaningful career conversations with your young person’ is being hosted by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) from 6:30-7:15pm.  

SDS careers advisers Kay Hume and Mhairi Galashan will discuss the benefits of talking to young people about their career plans early, as well as sharing how to approach these discussions and gain the most value from them. 

You will also be able to ask questions during the session.

* You will need to download the Microsoft Teams app to participate.
