Scottish Apprenticeship Week – Scotland’s Biggest Parents’ Evening

As part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce are holding an information evening on Wednesday 6 March at the Chamber office in Bridge of Don from 5.30 – 8pm.

Steve Petrie, Chair of DYWNE, will be doing some opening remarks and there will be short presentations from 3 apprentices from each of Foundation, Modern and Graduate.  It will be very informal and then the focus will be on networking with the ‘providers’ who will all have a stand with details on support and provision and be able to answer questions about pathways.  There will also be a range of material focussed on parents and employers (these are also downloadable on the link to the event).

You can see the details of the event and link to book for free on EventBrite here –
