SCILT (Scotland’s National Centre for Languages) organised a Business Brunch, on Tuesday 26th January, at the Kingsmill’s hotel to encourage S3 pupils to continue with languages in the senior phase.
The event provided schools from the Highlands with an opportunity to hear from various dynamic speakers who view language skills as a key part for the success of their business in a globalised market. Most importantly, it gave young people the chance to ask questions and find out more about the variety of careers and employment opportunities that are open to people who can demonstrate language skills on their CV.
The session concluded with inspirational speaker, Shauna Jennens from Dalmore Distillery. It was a successful day for the ten pupils from Charleston Academy who were invited to take part.
