UPDATE: Coronavirus (COVID – 19)
Career Information, Advice and Guidance
In line with public health advice our network of public access centres is temporarily closing and with the planned closure of schools, our careers advisers will no longer be accessible through school.
In order to maintain services to all our customers at this critical time, one-to-one contact with careers advisers will still be available online and over the phone.
Skills Development Scotland cannot deliver career services face to face, but they are still there to help. You can contact your school Careers Advisers: Carla Bichan and Karolina Grzelec for
career information, advice and guidance at :
Karolina.firstname.lastname@example.org; Mobile: 07887832386
or visit myworldofwork.co.uk
*************************************************************************The careers input in school is provided by Skills Development Scotland. Karolina and Carla are in the school 4 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 conventions.
Meeting with Karolina or Carla 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.
On the left hand side you will find useful information about the various Horizons (opportunities) available to you when you leave school, and along the top tool bar you will find links to particular year groups with posts which should be appropriate to that stage of schooling.
PARENTS – for more detailed information and resources check out the year group page for your child.
If you want to talk over any of your ideas and get help with decision making, look at your skills and strengths, find out what is out there when you leave school, find out who else can help you, look at your subject choice next year please get in touch with one of your Careers Advisers.
