The careers guidance programme begins in S3 with two sessions in the Autumn semester, focused on getting the students to think about their skills and interests and what this could mean for the world of work. This is followed by a parents evening in January which looks in more detail at the choices available for S4/S5.
In S5 the careers guidance programme is made up of three sessions, which, building on the work done in S3, prepare the pupils for the subject choices in S6/S7, along with informing students regarding further study and pathways beyond school. Again there is a parents evening in January which deals with subject choices. At the end of S5 all students are required to complete a work experience placement.
In S6 and S7 further work is done to prepare students for university applications, including attending the annual alumni meeting and university information fairs. Useful links are listed below for further research. Subject choice forms and work experience contracts can also be found here.
