Careers

The careers input in school is provided by Skills Development Scotland. Caroline and Stephen are in the school 3 days a week providing support one-to-one, in small groups and in PSE classes. As well as group work in every year we attend all parents’ evenings and the local careers convention. Sometimes we may even come into your subject classes.

Meeting with Caroline or Stephen is not all about you deciding on the ‘right’  job when you leave school but more about career planning. Very few of us now have a traditional career path. We want you to leave school with the skills to deal with changes and be able to make well-informed decisions so that you know that YOU can make the right career choices for YOURSELF.

Knowing all of your options and what you can offer will help you to be successful when you decide the time is right for you to leave school. We will spend time with you talking about Career Management Skills and talking about your Self, Strengths, Horizons and Networks. To start your planning register on Myworldofwork. You will find out more detailed information on your year group pages.
