Next Steps For Dumfries & Galloway Pupils

Young people can find out more about careers, college and university at a Higher Education Exhibition in Dumfries on Wednesday 30 August.
The event, organised by Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and UCAS, is at Easterbrook Hall, The Crichton, Bankend Road.
It brings together representatives from Higher and Further Education institutions in Scotland and elsewhere. They will be on hand to offer local young people advice as well as information on courses and traditional and alternative routes into learning. There will also be seminars on personal statements.

SDS Team Leader Juliet Campbell said: “Deciding which course, university, college, or career to choose is one of the most important decisions people make. By having all the information and experts in one place, the Exhibition offers young people and their parents to help them make that vital decision.”
Juliet added: “We know that many fifth and sixth year pupils from local schools will be coming along, but would also like to welcome anyone interested in finding out about Higher Education, including parents, carers and college students.”

SDS careers advisers will be at the free event to give impartial, one-to-one advice on options and opportunities including employer, training, Modern, Foundation and Graduate Level apprenticeships and volunteering.
The Exhibition will run from 9.45am until 1.00pm.
