Skills Development Scotland
Throughout your time at school you’ll have to make some big decisions about your future, and that’s where Skills Development Scotland’s Careers Advisers come in.
Carol Chalmers and Gemma Cargill are based right here in the school to give you the careers support you need throughout your time with us.
Through a combination of group sessions, one-to-one interviews and drop in clinics Carol and Gemma will help you understand how your personality, interests and values are key to making the right career decisions. They can also help you understand how to develop and use your talents and skills, explore where they could take you, and identify who can help you along on your career journey. All to help you plan and manage your career.
Carol and Gemma offer a careers drop in every Tuesday and Friday Lunchtime in the careers room so pop along if you would like to speak to them. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also visit www.facebook.com/sdsfife/ for information on local training and job opportunities, job search hints and tips.
You can also visit My World of Work which is Scotland’s careers information and advice web service.
