Futures Conference 2018


S5 pupils celebrated the end of exams by attending the 2018 Futures Conference - learning about life beyond School. 

They attended lectures on important topics such as UCAS, personal statements and entry requirements, given by members of the CDHE Department. 

Visits from groups and influencers such as the Royal Air Force and Adam Gordon allowed pupils to identify and hone transferable skills that are in demand within further education and the workplace, including communication and teamwork. 

Visiting group, Inspiring Futures, gave pupils the opportunity to develop their presentation abilities by allowing groups to give presentations of their own choice to the rest of the year. 

Former pupils were also invited to give advice on life after school and information they wish they had known when applying for university. 

The Higher Education Fair brought representatives from Scotland’s top universities to the school, enabling pupils to inquire about entry requirements, student life, accommodation; all while gathering lots of prospectuses.
