Talk about skills

Career Conversations about Employability and Creativity
by the Schools and Lifelong Learning Arts and Creative Learning Team

Dear Parents and Pupils,

You are invited to an informative and inspiring conversation event about the employability and creativity skills, sought by employers.

The Schools and Lifelong Learning Arts and Creative Learning team is hosting two events primarily for parents and young people. Creativity is not all about the arts but is a skill set which is increasingly sought by employers in today’s rapidly changing world.

This is not a traditional career information event. Rather, the format is based on the highly successful and engaging Creative Conversations where people come together to talk about an area of education, in this case: employability and creativity. The events will be held in Firrhill and Craigmount High Schools, and parents and carers from right across the North West and South West localities are encouraged to attend either event. Further events in the East of the city are planned for August and September.

The event is conversational and informative and will be led by the school headteachers and Ken Edwards from Skills Developments Scotland. You, and your children if they would like to attend, are invited to come along to hear about what creativity skills really are and why they are highly valued in the workplace. Refreshments will be served from 7pm and you are welcome on either date. The details are:

Tuesday 30th May 2017, 5.45 – 8pm with refreshments from 7pm hosted at Firrhill High School 
or
Tuesday 6th June 2017, 5.45 – 8pm with refreshments from 7pm hosted at Craigmount High School
Anyone wishing to attend should RSVP to martin.hutchison@edinburgh.gov.uk by 3pm on the 26th May 2017.  We look forward to meeting you at either Career Conversation.
