The duration of March 2016 saw Springboard promote a series of events and activities as part of Scottish Tourism Careers Festival. The industry galvanised to showcase the dynamic Scottish tourism industry where excellent career opportunities are available. The industry opened its doors to highlight the jobs and services available to young people considering careers in the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry.
On 24th March 2016 Springboard Scotland and the Glasgow City Council Culinary Excellence Programme worked to bring two Glasgow Schools together. The schools were given the opportunity to take part in a ‘Hotel Takeover’ with the Village Hotel Glasgow. Twelve pupils from Whitehill Secondary School and Lochend Secondary School were chosen to take part in this exciting initiative.
Saturday 19th March was the second day of the Capital Talent Event. All attendees were given the chance to seek out the latest career opportunities available to them from a range of businesses. They also had the chance to receive careers advice and attend talks given by industry experts.
