Choosing a career path is a difficult decision to make, at any age, and the annual Take Time event in Rothesay Joint Campus on Thursday provided ample support for those making plans for their future.

Take Time, which is organised by Skills Development Scotland with support from Rothesay Academy and the local Opportunities for All group, welcomed over 40 organisations to the games hall at Rothesay Joint Campus, with representatives from universities and colleges, the armed forces, charities, and civil engineering.

Fire Scotland performed a safety presentation, showing what can happen when you pour water on to a chip pan fire. A number of talks were held throughout the school, offering the opportunity for students and visitors to find out more about applying to further education courses, and careers in the armed forces, among others.

The pupils were on hand to welcome all visitors to the school, and hospitality students showed their skills with food and drinks served in the ‘pop-up’ cafe in the hall.
