In the Languages & Your Career workshop delivered by SCILT (Scotland's National Centre for Languages), we will explore how languages can contribute to success in a wide range of jobs and career paths. This will be an interactive workshop with activities for learners to take part in. During the session we will explore the following areas:

  • stereotypes of careers involving languages
  • pathways using languages
  • examples of successful businesses/individuals who use languages regularly in their careers

We will be offering two additional sessions as part of Languages Week Scotland on:

  • Wednesday 2nd February (Now fully booked)
  • Thursday 3rd February (Now fully booked)

Three sessions will be offered on each date and will take place at:

  • 9 – 10am
  • 11am – 12pm
  • 2 – 3pm

DYW Context:
This workshop will help learners identify the language skills they have learnt, see how these relate to the world of work, and access and interpret the information they need to make well informed choices about their learning options, pathways and possible future careers.
