Stalls to help students at skills event

Have your say

staff from universities and colleges across the UK will gather in the Capital next week to provide information to would-be students.

More than 50 organisations will set up stall at the Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) Higher Education Convention at Edinburgh Napier University’s Craiglockhart Campus on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Patricia Thomson, SDS area manager, said: “Making the decision to go to college or university is a major one and the convention provides a great opportunity to speak to the experts and get all the information you need before you make that all-important choice.

“It is obviously a big decision for the whole family so parents are welcome to come along and find out how best they can support their children.”

SDS careers advisers will also be on hand to provide impartial, one-on-one, advice.
