Skills Development Scotland Career Management Skills

As young people begin to explore their options for further learning and work, it is important that they identify their skills and strengths as they make decisions about what they want to do.

Working with school staff Skills Development Scotland (SDS) can help young people get ready for this exciting stage in their lives and prepare for their future.

SDS provides a range of support to help pupils to develop career management skills they’ll need all of their lives and make well informed decisions about their career pathways. Schools are now building career management into their curriculums.

In addition group sessions, drop-in-lunchtime clinics and face-to-face coaching, where appropriate, is supported by My World of Work web service, (www.myworldofwork.co.uk). This website provides information on:

  • Different careers and opportunities
  • How to build CV’s search for jobs
  • Source funding for learning
  • Applying for further higher education and many other tools.

 

Career advisers will help pupils who need some tailored support to explore the training and skills necessary for the job or career which is right for them.

Your careers adviser is Sharon Tulloch. Sharon is available in Peterhead Academy four and a half days per week.
