We are delighted to be working with e-Sgoil and DYW Live to this session, which will explore how languages can contribute to success in a wide range of jobs and career paths. The webinar aims to introduce secondary learners to the importance of languages and their associated skills in the workplace, break down stereotypes of careers that use languages, identify appropriate career pathways, and hear examples of people who use languages in their daily work. It will be an interactive session with input from people who use languages in their work.

The session will take place in Glow Teams.

For more information and registration details, visit the e-Sgoil website.
