Vir­tual re­al­ity of world at work

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Pupils across Aberdeen are be­ing in­vited to an event where they can get a real­is­tic in­sight into the world of work through vir­tual re­al­ity.

Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land (SDS) is host­ing a show which will take place at Aberdeen’s P&J Live arena on Mon­day Novem­ber 11 and Tues­day Novem­ber 12.

Young­sters in their se­nior years of sec­ondary school will also be able to meet em­ploy­ers, train­ing providers, col­leges, uni­ver­si­ties and pro­fes­sional bod­ies.

The free event aims to in­form prospec­tive school-leavers of the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to them, whether it be ap­pren­tice­ships, higher ed­u­ca­tion or work.

There will also be ses­sions for par­ents, car­ers and teach­ers in the early evening where they can find out how they can sup­port the teenagers in the next stage of their jour­ney.

SDS di­rec­tor of ca­reer in­for­ma­tion and guid­ance op­er­a­tions James Rus­sell said: “We help peo­ple to make the choices that are right for them.”
