The Skills Scotland event will be held at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on Tuesday 6th November. The event aims to help young people transition into the world of further study, work or training by identifying their ideal career pathway. It may be of particular interest to pupils intending to leave school within the next year. Further details are available at

Meldrum Academy is willing to take pupils from S4/5/6 who intend leaving school by next summer to the event during the school day, leaving at 10.00am and returning around 1.00pm.  Pupils would have around 90 minutes at AECC to visit the stands of the various exhibitors.

Pupils will be required to pay £4 as a contribution to transport costs for the event.  Interested pupils should collect a letter and consent form from Mr Sim.  Money together with completed form must be returned to Mr Sim via the school office no later than Wednesday 31st October.
