Building on the campaign we started during Scotland's Year of Young People 2018, we're working with British Council Scotland and Scottish Government again in 2021, to encourage you to embrace the international experiences and opportunities available to you at home, learn about different cultures and get thinking about the world outside of Scotland!
Our aim is to encourage you to embrace the international experiences available to you - at home while we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic - and to provide you with information to help along the way.
The world beyond Scotland with #GlobeScotters
We've focused on how to pick up soft skills such as learning new languages, experiencing new cultures, and learning about the world outside of Scotland, which can enhance your international outlook or broaden your educational opportunities, and even benefit your career prospects in the future.
With young people all over Scotland and the UK thinking about what careers they might want to go into, we’re hoping to inspire you to think about visiting, working and studying abroad once it's safe to do so again. For example, having skills in other languages like Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, French and German, is great for getting jobs and putting your best foot forward in other countries!
But it goes far beyond that, because when you learn a new language you improve in other areas too, like reading, writing, communication and confidence.
It’s also pretty cool to be able to visit another country and be able to speak to people in their own language. Even if that’s just with a few words or phrases – it’ll make your experience so much more fun!
Why not start by figuring out which language you should learn?
