Careers – Skills Development Scotland – Forth Valley


Skills Development Scotland offers careers information, advice and guidance to pupils in school and to people of all ages in Scotland. We can offer free and impartial advice on education, training, careers and jobs.
Kirsty Devlin is the Careers Adviser for St Mungo’s High School and can be found in the careers room in the school library. She is in school for appointments Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
To arrange an appointment pupils can either drop by during registration on the days Kirsty is in school or speak to their Pastoral Head Teacher. Alternatively, Kirsty can be contacted at kirsty.devlin@sds.co.uk or 01324 620311.
Our Careers Advisers offer pupils group sessions and face-to-face coaching, where appropriate. This is supported by Scotland’s careers and information web service My World of Work: www.myworldofwork.co.uk

My World of Work helps you with:

  • Subject choices – understanding your strengths to help make better choices about your subject choices and future career ideas
  • Leaving school – find a career that interests you and understand the skills you need to get the job you want
  • Exam results – straight into a job or onto further learning? Whatever your grades find help in planning your next steps
  • Preparing for a job – discover Scotland’s industries, search for jobs, build your CV and practice for interviews
  • Modern Apprenticeships – why not earn as you learn. Find out what apprenticeships are available in Scotland and how they work

Parent or carer? Use My World of Work to access reliable and accurate careers information and advice to help you to support the child in your life through those big career decisions. You can also meet with the school Careers Adviser at parent’s evenings

Support for leaving school?

Careers Advice and support to access opportunities is also available from Skills Development Scotland for school leavers. We have a dedicated post-school team to work with school leavers to help support them with their next steps.
