Skills Development Scotland
Alison and Elizabeth, the Bell Baxter Careers Advisers, want to send a reminder to pupils that they are still here to help! School may be closed for now but they are still working from home and are in the process of contacting pupils to offer advice, if you are in S4, S5 or S6 and are sitting feeling unsure about your career decisions and would like to chat through your ideas, then please email and they will be happy to contact you by phone. (please provide a tel No)
Pupils in S2 completing courses choices may have already spoken to an adviser, however if they feel they’d like to talk through their choices get in touch on the email addresses below.
We hope that when we return to school we can visit PSE classes and deliver sessions to pupils to support their career planning.
