Scotland’s Biggest Parent Evening – 6th March 2019, 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Come join us at Scotland’s Biggest Parent Evening at Centre for Enterprise, Dundee and Angus College, Arbroath Campus, Arbroath.

Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening is part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2019 – an annual campaign highlighting the value apprenticeships and work-based learning brings to individuals, employers and the economy.

The aim of this event is to help parents & carers understand why they should encourage more young people in choosing an apprenticeship.  It will provide an understanding of the apprenticeship family while getting rid of the myths and misconceptions.

Join us at the Centre for Enterprise, Dundee and Angus College, Arbroath Campus, Arbroath on Wednesday 6 March to find out more from local companies and apprentices about why it works for them. Skills Development Scotland, Dundee and Angus College and Developing the Young Workforce will also be there to explain the what and the why of apprenticeships.

Can’t make it?  Don’t worry you can tune into our youtube channel on 06/03/19 between 6 – 7.30pm for a live stream of the event or check it out the next day.

Send in questions for our apprentices to contact@dywda.co.uk or message us on social media.

Skills Development Scotland are holding a similar event at their Dundee Careers Centre, Royal Exchange Building, Panmure Street, Dundee.

Scotland Biggest Parents Evening is part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week.

Scottish Apprenticeship Week 4 to 8 March

The countdown is on for Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2019 from 4 to 8 March. Skills Development Scotland aims to make this year’s #ScotAppWeek the best yet, with the help of employers, apprentices, industry bodies, learning providers, colleges, universities and campaign supporters. Apprenticeships and work-based learning are providing the skills needed for a successful Scotland.

With that in mind this year’s theme is ‘Skills for the Future’, recognising the importance of investing in our workforce. We want everyone with a shared interest in the success of apprenticeships to get involved and show how they support work-based learning.

This year, there are three simple ways we’re asking supporters to back #ScotAppWeek:

1. Recognise the people who have supported their own
work-based learning through our #HereBecauseOf social media campaign

2. Join Scotland’s Apprentice Network

3. Support Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening #BigParentsEve

The Campaign Toolkit on apprenticeships.scot provides full details on how to get involved, with links to downloadable graphics, social media posts and supporting materials.

There is also an online form to register your events and activity so we can promote everything that’s happening throughout the country.
