Skills Development Scotland works in partnership with the school.
Liz Batterham is the school Careers Adviser and normally visits the school at least once a week during term time.
During the year, staff from Skills Development Scotland will talk with S3, S4, S5 and S6 pupils about their Career Management Skills and the career planning process. Good career planning involves knowing about yourself and knowing about what jobs and courses demand. Skills Development Scotland has a range of resources to help young people and a good starting point is their careers website www.myworldofwork.co.uk which has lots of careers information and plenty of useful links. There is also a specific section for parents and carers.
Liz also regularly meets with pupils on a one to one basis to discuss Career Planning, Guidance, Information and Advice. Requests are made through pupils’ Guidance Teacher.
