Fraser Cardow (Cairngorm Skills Partnership) and Deirdre Falconer (who is currently on a career break from KHS working at Glentruim Estate) work with a group of S5 to discuss what it means to be ‘fit for work’.

On Wednesday we held our first S5 / S6 Employability Event at KHS.

Our S5 and S6 were told to come dressed to impress as if they were going for an interview and didn’t they look smart!

In the afternoon we welcomed partners from Cairngorm Skills Partnership, Job Centre Plus, Cairngorm National Park, Cairngorm Mountain, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Skills Development Scotland, DMH Blacksmiths Ltd, Glentruim Estate, CITB and Highlife Highland.

Students took part in short workshops about interview skills, CVs, application forms and being prepared / fit for work. A massive thanks to everyone who supported such a great afternoon.

Massive thanks to Mrs Duthie and Mr Deans for all the hard work that they put in to organising the event and an even more massive thanks to all of our partners who gave up their time to help.
