The Early Learning & Childcare Apprenticeship event will take place at the SDS Office in Inverness on 8 March. This event is aimed at Senior Phase pupils who have an interest in the ELC sector. See your Guidance Teacher if this appeals to you.
30 pupils from S1-3 enjoyed a morning of workshops at Skills Development Scotland in Inverness, learning about jobs in cyber security, white hat (ethical) hacking courses at university and how to encrypt and decrypt messages on paper and using software. Officers from Police Scotland gave a very informative presentation on cyber threats and safety, while Dr. Alessio Gusmeroli of SDS led the coding session in the Digital Lab.
Our pupils were congratulated by their hosts for their excellent behaviour, engagement and application. Police Scotland offered to give extra presentations at school, which are being organised soon. SDS are organising another cyber security trip for a group of S2-3 pupils from GGS in March to meet with cyber security apprentices working for a large company in the local area.
An exciting day exploring our planet from the depth of the oceans and from space provided by Skills Development Scotland at their brand new facility in Church St, Inverness city centre.
If you would like to join us on an exploration into the ocean, earth and space, please email email@example.com with a sentence as to why you want to come to the camp.
