School Leavers – Summer 2020 Update

Thursday 14th May 2020

Your child may have intended to leave school this summer to move into employment, training, college, university or perhaps volunteering or travelling and we understand you may be concerned about how things might be affected by Covid19.

If your child intended to leave school and planned to move into employment or training, you may shortly receive a letter and leaflet which has been put together by a range of partners across Midlothian Council.  It provides helpful information about the opportunities and offers that are available to you and your child if their plans have been affected.

If your child has been offered and has accepted a place at Edinburgh College, this remains unchanged so there is no need for any further action.  Likewise, there may be other training and further study offers that have not been affected by Covid19.

As always, we are here to help and will be getting in touch with families and young people who we know may need some additional support at this time. Skills Development Scotland are also still working during school closures and continue to contact young people to discuss future plans.

If you need any further information, your child’s student support teacher can provide support and advice.  Please use the relevant email account,  i.e., the House your child is/was in

The letter and leaflet can be accessed below
