Skills for work / vocational pathways

Our Skills for Work / Vocational Pathways courses are great ways for young people to become familiar with the world of work while they are still at school. They are also designed to address skills shortages in key industries in Shetland.

 

The video below (which can also be viewed on YouTube) will give you a good flavour of what these courses are like. There are also external links for each part of the video if you are interested in a particular course.

If you are in Secondary 3 or 4 and are keen to get a taster of a particular career and experience college life while still at school, these courses are for you. Courses run every alternate Friday (Hairdressing runs on a Thursday), for either one or two years depending on the subject.

This is your chance to acquire hands-on practical skills that could help you secure a job in the future.  Not only that, but you will build your self-confidence and learn other key skills such as time-keeping, professional appearance, problem solving and customer care.
