AGCAS Scotland Special Interest Groups

AGCAS Scotland special interest groups offer the opportunity for careers service staff with similar responsibilities or interests to come together to build their Scottish network, increase their labour market knowledge and share good practice. Special interest groups:

  • Meet approximately 2 to 3 times a year
  • Have members from a wide range of HE institutions across Scotland
  • Are open to any member with an interest in that particular area
  • Are collaborative and designed to ensure knowledge is shared across the AGCAS Scotland community
  • Have links with AGCAS Task groups where appropriate
  • Utilise technology to facilitate inclusivity of membership where accessibility or travel may be an issue
  • Participate in various activities such as external employer visits, guest speakers and training events

Below is a list of current groups and contact details for the group conveners:
