On Thursday 9th November, the Edinburgh College team was out in full force at this year’s Skills Scotland at the Royal Highland Centre – Ingliston. Over 2,500 school pupils from across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife came along to the exhibition to discover the fantastic career options open to them after they leave school.
This year, we showcased our childcare, access and continuing education, professional cookery, hair and beauty, computing and broadcast media and photography subjects.
Pupils got the chance to sample rainbow mocktails, take part in green screen visualisation, watch demos of a 3D printer, get involved in the interactive play and take our career coach quiz to find their perfect job based on their personality.
The team were also rewarded by winning Best Interactive Stand at the event for our Cookery and Hair and Beauty area who got pupils involved with nail art and crepe sampling!
The event was a great opportunity to meet school pupils in the local area and give them a flavour of what Edinburgh College can offer.
If you want to find out more about the courses you can study at Edinburgh College in 2018 come along to one of our open days in December to speak to teaching staff about the courses we offer, entry requirements, application hints and tips and finding the right course for you.
