S5 Careers Page

You have lots of choices to make this year but we are here to help. One of the biggest decisions is whether to continue your education at Penicuik High School, go to college or start looking for a full-time job. Your teachers will help with subject choice for S6 but if you are considering leaving it is important that you find out as much as you can about your next steps.

Along with your Nationals and Highers there are many different options open to you when choosing your subjects this year including:

School/College Partnership Programme

Foundation Apprenticeships

South East Academies

Pathways Programmes

Business Mentors – speak guidance for more information

Volunteering – arrange your own or contact Volunteer Midlothian

You must speak to your guidance teacher if you are interested in any of these to get information on applying.
