Summer school leavers and young job seekers from North and East
Fife are being invited to take part in a 'Move on Up' event which
will give them an insight into the range of opportunities available
to them in employment, training and learning.
'Move on Up' will take place on Friday 9 March 2012 from 10.00am
until 12 noon in the main hall at Waid Academy, St Andrews Road,
Skills Development Scotland, Fife training providers, local
colleges, Jobcentre Plus, the voluntary sector and other local
providers have joined forces to organise an interactive,
participative event which will allow young people to consider
issues which are central to the world of work.
Janice Carlyle, Skills Development Scotland team leader,
"'Move on Up' is a unique opportunity for young job seekers to
meet with local training providers, local colleges and other
organisations all under the one roof. Young people will be able to
take part in fun activities, while finding out essential
information about career opportunities to suit them."
Each young person who comes along to the event will be offered
follow-up support by a Skills Development Scotland adviser to help
them progress their career plans. Readers can also access our
