Research

It is important to do your research before selecting your subject areas or choosing your courses.  Use My World of Work and Planit Plus to find out about your personality and strengths, then you can link it to possible careers that may interest you. 

UCAS, MappIt and the College websites will help you consider courses and apprenticeships.

Look at the qualifications you will need for future destinations. 

Consider what the course requirements are, what you will be expected to do in school and at home.  (for example amounts of independent study and presentations in class)

You can book an appointment with her through the school website or by asking the Depute House Head.  SDS will also be available on the information evenings to answer questions and offer advice.

DHH Interviews

Every student in S2, S4 and S5 will be allocated a time to meet with their Depute House Head.  At this time you will go with your plans and you will be given an opportunity to discuss and ensure the plan is the correct one for you.
