CAREER PLANNING SUPPORT FROM SKILLS DEV ELOPMENT SCOTLAND

Jenni Murray is the Careers Adviser for Dumfries Academy and will be in school on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Jenni works for Skills Development Scotland and has been the Careers Adviser in Dumfries Academy since May 2016.

Jenni offers an in-school drop in service during lunchtime every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and is based in the Nurse’s Room (next to Mr Sloan’s Office). Pupils are encouraged to attend drop in sessions if they have any questions or would like some advice regarding career related topics. If a more in depth session is required 1:1 guidance appointments can be arranged by attending a drop in session or speaking to the appropriate Head of Year.

Jenni also provides year group specific group work sessions throughout the academic year to cover topics in relation to career management skills and support course choice.

Parental leaflets outlining the role of Skills Development Scotland within the school and the workshops Jenni offers are available. If you would like a leaflet please contact Jenni via the school office or alternatively collect a leaflet from Jenni directly.
