Teachers & advisors

Our Marketing and Student Recruitment Team is always at hand to speak to teachers, schools and career advisors. We offer talks about SRUC, about different post-school study options (university, college and apprenticeships) and about land-based careers in general. We are very happy to attend school careers events and we offer digital resources to support careers advice.
