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.
There is a Careers Adviser 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 they 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 with your career journey. All to help you plan for and manage your career.
To find out more about the support on offer please contact Careers in School in Room C23
You can also visit SDS Fife Facebook page for information on local training and job opportunities, job search hints and tips, or to drop in to Dunfermline or Cowdenbeath.
Parents and Carers
When it comes to making career decisions, you’re one of the first people your child will turn to for help.
Skills Development Scotland is Scotland’s careers service and our Careers Advisers are available to support you and your child throughout their time at school.
You can get in touch with your Careers Adviser through the school.
My World of Work
My World of Work is Scotland’s careers website. It helps you explore your career, skills and learning opportunities from school right through your working life.
Use the site regularly as you go through school. The more you tell it about yourself, the more great careers ideas you’ll get for you.
Remember your Skills Development Scotland Careers Adviser is available at school to talk to you about your options. Or drop into one of our careers centres to get support and information on what to do next. Your local careers centres are in Dunfermline and Cowdenbeath. Phone 01383 745610 for more information.

Research shows that the most influential figures in children’s career choices are parents and carers, and to achieve the best outcomes, it’s important to start conversations early.
And that’s where we can help support you.
As a modern careers service, we’re aware of the demands of the working environment. Collaborating with employers at every level, we’ve got a picture of the skills in demand – and the skills that’ll be relevant in the future.
We use this intelligence to inform our career management service, encouraging people into jobs that suit their skills, strengths and ambitions – and, in turn, help build a modern and prosperous Scottish economy.
But to make our work effective, we need to deliver it in partnership with parents.
That’s why we’ve created My Kid’s Career.
By talking about careers with your children as early as you can, you’ll be able to help them find a job that offers them the future they want. But it can be difficult to know where to begin – or where to find the time.
Our discussion guides, written by expert careers advisers and designed to mirror your child’s milestones, will provide the steps you need to approach these conversations with confidence.
From subject choices to the jobs of the future, routes to entry, to what to do if they don’t get the exam results they need – we’ve got credible, up-to-date advice on critical issues.
Apprenticeships have changed, with more than 80 different types covering hundreds of jobs. With a Modern Apprenticeship you get a job, get paid and get qualified - in some roles right up to degree level. No wonder more than 25,000 people choose a Modern Apprenticeship every year.
Want to know more? At apprenticeships.scot you can search for apprenticeships, apply for apprenticeship jobs and find out more about the different levels of qualifications.
