Education Accessibility Strategy 2016 – Survey

We are about to start developing a new Accessibility Strategy and would like to gather your views on what we should include in our new action plan.

We would also like to hear about examples of good practice in East Lothian Schools and Nurseries where steps have been taken to improve accessibility.

By completing this questionnaire you will help up to prioritise what we need to do to promote positive attitudes and better access for our children and young people.

Scottish Apprenticeship Show

The Scottish Apprenticeship Show will take place on October 13th and 14th at Edinburgh’s EICC. An apprenticeship is a great way for young people to earn while they learn and get ahead in their careers.  Skills Development Scotland are providing a unique opportunity for young people and the nation’s top employers to come together, face to face, in a friendly environment.

There will be something for everyone – whether engineering and manufacturing or media and communications, all key employment categories will be represented.  Ask questions, get answers and make informed choices about your future!  Parents and carers can also get involved and find out why an apprenticeship could be the right move for their children.

This is not a school event so no booking is required.  Any absence from school must be covered in the usual way by letter from home in advance of the event.
