Planning your career can be very challenging. Viewforth High School provides a range of opportunities and support to aid all learners in this process.
One key element of this is our partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS). SDS are Scotland’s national skills agency who support individuals to build their career management, work-based and employability skills, throughout their career journey, from school, into further learning opportunities and employment.
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) restrictions, the in-school support provided by Skills Development Scotland has had to be a little different. However, they are still there to help. You can contact your school Careers Adviser, Ada Watson, for career information, advice and guidance at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit myworldofwork.co.uk.
My World of Work is an excellent resource that young people use within school to help identify skills & qualities, research potential career options and discover the qualifications pathways to reach their goals. All our learners have an account set up using their Glow e-mail account and parents/carers are greatly encouraged to explore the site with your child. Alternatively you can enter the site as a parent or carer for help and support in how to have career conversations or go to www.mykidscareer.com.
Myworldofwork.co.uk allows has a build-in CV creator that will pull your child’s personal information from their account making this process easier.
You can also visit us on Facebook – SDS Fife – for information on local training and job opportunities, job search hints and tips, or to contact the Kirkcaldy careers team.
