Careers

Work in the twenty-first century places complex demands on young people and as a school we are committed to helping our students to become self-confident, skilled and ready to manage their future careers. A programme of careers education is integrated into the curriculum alongside a wide programme of other work related activities and information, advice and guidance.

We work in partnership with local and national organisations and work related activities include engagement with employers in curriculum learning, visits to workplaces, the opportunity to undertake a work experience placement, visits to regional Careers Fairs, apprenticeship talks and mock interviews.

Students have the opportunity to explore the wide range of education and training available post 16 and post 18 and all have access to face to face impartial guidance from Helen Airdrie, our full-time, qualified Careers Adviser.

We value the rich contribution which parents and alumni can make, inspiring and informing our students, and are always keen to hear anyone willing to contribute. Both alumni and parents can register their interest using the alumni link on this website.

There is a huge number of very good careers exploration and information websites available on the internet.  If exploring career ideas with your son/daughter you might like to start with one of the following links, below.
