Our comprehensive Careers Programme is designed to ensure that every pupil is supported in developing the skills and knowledge they need to make successful educational and career choices.
The careers department at Dunottar aims to:
- To inform and support pupils in their search, evaluation and choice of post-16 and post-18 education
- To prepare pupils’ applications for higher education routes or alternative employment routes
- To instil confidence and pride in our pupils for their choices and ambitions for their chosen path
- As a school, pride ourselves in our efforts for getting pupils to their desired destinations
Support from the outset
Career research begins in Year 7 when all students use Fast Tomato, an online resource tool that provides information and careers advice, encouraging pupils to think about which fields are interesting and exciting. This helps to inform their long-term subject choices at GCSE and A-Level. Throughout the academic year, Dunottar hosts a range of subject-specific careers networking events. We welcome a range of speakers from a diverse range of fields to offer our pupils an insight into application processes, daily life of employees and the skills employers are looking for. The programme is regularly updated. Follow our careers twitter page for the latest news!
