New School Curriculum - Invitation To Employers


16th August 2013

A new curriculum and examination system has been developed for young people in school. This new structure has generated substantial interest and a desire for more information from various bodies including local employers.

To help clarify the new qualifications, compare them with previous awards and discuss what impact this may have on employers and partner agencies, Abertay University, in partnership with Dundee City Council\'s Education Department, is hosting an evening information session on Wednesday 4 September. This will begin with tea/coffee/wine/some food and networking from 5.30pm and the whole event should finish by 7.30pm.

The aim of this event is to help employers understand how the range and content of the new qualifications are designed to provide young people with the appropriate skills, knowledge and capabilities which will provide employers and partnership organisations a future workforce which is literate, numerate and prepared for employment.

To find out more about this event, please contact Kenny McKeown on 01382 434664.
