Our Island, Our Future

Creating Skilled Young People

Our Creating Skilled Young people project is all about working with local, young people to help them get the best out of their futures’.

Each Year we team up with Argyll and Bute council’s 16+ department to run a Careers day in An Talla. The event is foccussed on the interests of the young people and gives them an opportunity to talk to people from the work sector’s which they are intered in. At the careers day we also have different workshops in subjects like teambuilding, CV writing and much more.

We also have a special evening session for older young people (18+) where we can have a chat with them about their hopes and aims for the future. Lots of interesting information is available all day and representatives from Argyll College, Sal Mor and Skills Development Scotland are present.

As well as holding our Careers Event we also do some careers mentoring with young people and run Activity Agreements throughout the year.
