Bearsden Academy is committed to the delivery of a Career Education Curriculum for every young person.
We recognise the entitlement of every young person to access career education learning to support the development of their skills for learning life and work as set out within the following documents:
To support the school in developing the standards we work very closely with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) https://www.skillsdevelopmentscotland.co.uk/what-we-do/scotlands-careers-services/our-careers-service-in-schools/ through a joint partnership plan and with the Careers Advisors based within school. https://www.skillsdevelopmentscotland.co.uk/what-we-do/scotlands-careers-services/our-whos-who-of-careers-advisers/. This partnership plan enables us to work together to ensure we deliver the best Career Education Curriculum for young people.
There are many fantastic support services which we can access via Skills Development Scotland including their https://www.myworldofwork.co.uk service which every pupil is introduced to via their Personal and Social Education Curriculum. This is a service, which parents and carers may also access to support their child’s career education. You may find the following links for parents useful. https://www.myworldofwork.co.uk/parents, https://www.npfs.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/NPFS_world_of_possibilities_1509_E.pdf
