Careers Library

The Library has a well stocked Careers Library containing a wide range of information on university and college courses, apprenticeships, training and jobs.  Through the Internet pupils also have access to a wide range of careers websites. 

Careers books

Some of the most useful websites are:

www.myworldofwork.co.uk

www.planitplus.net

The school Careers Adviser, Miss Sandra Fleming is in school several times a week.  On these days, pupils can drop in to speak to Miss Fleming at lunchtime in the Guidance Base. Pupils and parents can also follow Skills Development Scotland on Facebook where they post information on the world of work along with job and apprenticeship opportunities.
