Lochaber High School Careers Fair 2018

We are looking forward to supporting and attending the annual Lochaber High School S4 – 6 Careers Fair which is scheduled to take place on the 31st August.

Pupils from Lochaber High, Mallaig High and Kilchuimen Academy will have the opportunity to speak to numerous visiting employers about possible career paths and employment opportunities. Career fairs are highly beneficial for young people as they can ask employers about their experiences of a particular job role, enabling them to find out exactly what is involved before deciding on a career path.

Through this initial contact with employers, pupils can gain valuable job sector knowledge, are able to make key links with industry and can potentially arrange to go on work experience. The information gained from being able to ask employers enough in-depth questions can be useful when it comes to applying for university, job and apprenticeship opportunities as young people know what key skills, experience and qualifications are required.

Attending employers will include the Fire Service, Army, local industry, Crown Vets, Police Scotland and many more!
