Careers Support in School & Post School
Skills Development Scotland has careers advisers working in every secondary school in the country. Their role is to help your child with developing career management skills as well as offering careers information, advice and guidance.
In Glenrothes High School careers advice and support is delivered by our Careers Advisor.
Services consist of:
• Monthly careers lunchtime sessions on topics such as CVs, applying to College etc.
• One to one career coaching for those who need it. Pupils are identified by guidance staff.
• Delivery of careers groupwork in PSE and Skills for Learning, Life and Work 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 Advisor will also meet with all S2 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 advisor:
