The school has two careers advisers from Skills Development Scotland: Lynsey Mitchell and Nicole Grant. They deliver group sessions to all year groups, as well as one to one appointments for pupils in S4-S6. As well as this, all S3s will receive a subject choice interview before making their choices for S4. They also attend parents’ evenings for pupils in S3 and above, and parents are able to book appointments. Any pupil who wishes to make an appointment can do so by dropping into our rooms or through their pastoral care teacher.
More information can be found on our website My World of Work. The site has a range of different tools to help young people and adults identify strengths and research careers. My Kids' Career is another resource which parents can use to support their children when making career decisions.
Your School Careers Advisers are running a CV workshop for S5/6 on Wednesday the 20th of February in the library. This will take place during periods 5 and 6.
Workshops for S4 pupils will run on Wednesday 6th March in the library, also during periods 5 and 6.
If you wish to attend, go to your class to register first and then drop in at the start of one of the periods. This is suitable for anyone looking for part-time work, full-time work and apprenticeships.
