Careers Support in School & Post School

In Glenrothes High School careers advice and support is delivered by two part-time Careers Advisers.

Services consist of:

• Careers drop in every Tuesday lunchtime (first floor landing in school). No appointment required.

• One to one career coaching for those who need it. Pupils are identified by guidance staff.

• Delivery of careers groupwork in PSE classes. These sessions are aimed at developing pupils’ career management skills.

• Attendance at parents' evenings for senior pupils and at Options Evenings.

• The My World of Work website which provides information for pupils, parents/carers and teachers.

The Careers Advisers will also meet with all S3 pupils on a 1:1 basis prior to subject choice. Parents/carers can attend these meetings and an invitation will be extended nearer the time.

If you have any questions regarding careers advice please contact our careers advisers:

As well as our work in schools, Skills Development Scotland has a Post School Team which provides careers information, advice and guidance to anyone (of any age) in need of careers support. We have a part time Careers Centre in the Rothes Halls (Opening hours: Monday & Tuesday 9:30am to 4:30pm and Wednesday & Thursday 1:30pm to 4:30pm) and a full time centre at Whytescauseway in Kirkcaldy. The facilities can be used on a drop in basis or an appointment can be arranged to speak with a Careers Adviser by phoning 01592 645180.
