Pupils at Kirkwall Grammar School can learn more about the variety of careers available in Orkney and hear from local people undertaking different jobs with DYW Orkney’s Careers in the Spotlight.
Leah, the DYW School Co-ordinator based at the KGS, has been busy speaking to local people about their jobs as part of this regular feature.
Pupils will learn more about the different pathways people have taken into their job, the best thing about it and the qualifications a young person might need to do a similar role. Pupils can also learn about some of the other skills and experience they should think about developing to help them in their future career.
Currently, pupils can read interviews from a Hairdresser, Teacher and Police Officer.
Careers in the Spotlight can be found on the SDS Orkney and DYW Orkney ‘Opportunities and Careers Information’ noticeboard which is located on the first floor of the school.
Thank you to all the local people who agreed to be interviewed for sharing their career journey with pupils.
