The Oban Times - - Leisure -

SEC­ONDARY school pupils in Oban at­tended a road show in the Cor­ran Halls that fo­cused on rais­ing aware­ness of the ca­reers avail­able in the dig­i­tal sec­tor.

The pupils re­ceived an in­sight in to the in­dus­try by get­ting hands on with new tech­nol­ogy and they were also pro­vided with in­for­ma­tion about how to get in to the pro­fes­sion.

More than 300 pupils from across Ar­gyll and Bute are set to take part in the road show, Dis­cov­er­ing Dig­i­tal World, which is hosted in part­ner­ship by Skills De­vel­op­ment Scot­land and Young Scot.

Claire Gille­spie, of Skills De­vel­op­ment Scot­land, said: ‘ We are re­ally pleased to be bring­ing Dis­cov­er­ing Dig­i­tal World to Ar­gyll and Bute af­ter our re­cent vis­its to Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh.

‘It has been fan­tas­tic to see teach­ers and par­ents get­ting in­volved and learn­ing about the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in Scot­land, so they can pro­vide the best pos­si­ble guid­ance to young peo­ple con­sid­er­ing their fu­ture ca­reer path.

‘We have an­swered a whole range of ques­tions about ev­ery­thing from cod­ing to gen­der equal­ity.’
