This year’s Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening (SBPE) will take place on 30 January and focus on “Jobs of the Future” and apprenticeships. The event is a joint initiative with Glasgow Science Centre and DYW Lanarkshire & North Dunbartonshire, hosted at Glasgow Science Centre. The event, aimed at parents and carers, will promote the Jobs of the Future and the skills, experience and qualifications their children will need to succeed in the changing job landscape.
Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening is a national campaign to increase parental engagement around Developing the Young Workforce (DYW).
Those attending will hear from Dr Steven Breslin, CEO of Glasgow Science Centre on Jobs of the Future. There will also be an Employer Marketplace where guests can speak directly to employers from the key growth industries, in addition to interactive workshops from key growth sectors. Industry experts at the event will include NHS, Scottish Power, Grand Central Hotel, Arnold Clark, EY, Jacobs and many more....
The event will be hosted by Alison McRae, Senior Director at Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, which hosts DYW Glasgow, who comments;
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Glasgow Science Centre alongside Developing the Young Workforce ( DYW) Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire to host this event promoting the Jobs of the Future to parents and young people from across the Glasgow City Region. We have some fantastic businesses attending from key growth sectors including Hospitality and Tourism, Engineering and Construction. Having an event on this scale, aimed specifically at parents and carers, is key to the work of DYW helping to inspire and inform one of the biggest influencers in a young person’s life. We hope parents and carers will leave feeling better prepared to support their child with key education and career decisions, whether this be further or higher education, jobs or apprenticeships”
Parents, carers and young people from Glasgow and the west are invited to attend and benefit from the expertise on offer as well as free access to Glasgow Science Centre and complimentary buses from various pick up points across the city.
