Former North Berwick High student will be hosting this event:
The Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell has had a rollercoaster career in politics. For twelve years, he was Scotland’s only Conservative MP. The Scottish Secretary is in Westminster trying to guide the country through an at times mind-boggling Brexit process. He joins the Spectator’s Katy Balls (North Berwick High Alumni) for a lively conversation looking back at his career highs and lows and what the future has in store for Scotland at a time of seismic change.
Giving your child careers advice
How do you speak to and advise your children about careers? Do you have the right support and information to speak to your children about their future career path? Please take five minutes to take part in this survey, to help Skills Development Scotland give parents the right support.
In this survey we would like to find out how aware you are of careers information, how you advise your child/children that you care for around careers and what support and information would help you do this effectively.
