Welcome to our Careers Page which aims to provide pupils, parents and guardians with current information relating to careers information and employment opportunities (links at the bottom of this page). It will sign-post readers to web links and highlight issues of importance for pupils aiming to make well informed and realistic career decisions about their future.
Angie Reilly, Careers Adviser
(in school every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday)
Jennifer Livsey, Careers Adviser
(in school every Wednesday)
Both based at the Pupil Support Base.
The careers service in the school is offered in the form of face to face interviews, group work and a weekly drop-in clinic, which is available every Wednesday, period 4 at ICT room 1F066. At the drop-in pupils can develop CV's, university/college personal statements, career management skills, research career areas, complete job applications and so on.
Pupils self-refer or are referred to the Careers Adviser by the Pupil Support and Management Team at the school. Referral Cards are available from the Front Office and once completed are posted back into the Career Box. The Careers Adviser will then organise interviews for pupils.
Pupils will often work with the Careers Adviser over a period of time as they become aware of their strengths, abilities and values and increase their awareness of the opportunities open to them in the world of work.
Career Plan of Action
The main careers interview ends with a hand written Career Plan of Action highlighting areas to research or consider and action points for the pupil and Careers Adviser to follow through on. The pupil is encouraged to discuss their plan with their family and friends.
My World of Work
Skills Development Scotland has developed a new website My World of Work which supports people with their career management skills. Currently all S4 pupils are being introduced to the website and are using the on line tools to help them increase their awareness of their strengths, personality and values and to carry out research on careers using the A-Z of Careers.
My World of Work is Scotland’s careers information and advice web service.
At school and right through to retirement, My World of Work helps you with up-to-date information, advice and tools when you need it most:
Get the help you need for the career you want.
My World of Work is delivered by Skills Development Scotland, the national skills body which supports the people and businesses of Scotland.
