I work for Skills Development Scotland* and in close partnership with the school we ensure that every young person will leave confident about their career choices and aware of the career options that are available. I am based in school and throughout the year pupils can access one-to-one coaching sessions to explore options, discuss ideas, set actions and develop their Career Management Skills.

There will be Group Sessions and talks on a variety of topics which will not only improve the young person’s Career Management Skills but raise awareness of the labour market and the opportunities available to them.

I welcome appointments with parents/carers where we can discuss issues and your child’s ideas to help them develop their Career Management Skills.
