Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and UCAS are having a Higher Education Exhibition in Dumfries and Galloway where young people can find out more about careers, college and university.

The event, in the Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries, on Wednesday 31 August, brings together representatives from Higher and Further Educations institutions in Scotland and elsewhere. These representatives will be on hand to offer advice as well as information on a variety of courses and learning pathways.

SDS’s Cheryl Ballantine said: “Choosing which course, university or career is one of the biggest decisions people make, so it is vital they have all the information to ensure that decision is well-informed.”

Careers advisers from SDS will be at the free event to give impartial, one-to-one advice on options and opportunities including employment, training, apprenticeships and volunteering.

The Exhibition will run from 9.45am until 1pm.
