Employability Activities Plan: Post-school employment activities and opportunities

Leaving school
For some young people and parents, leaving school and moving on to the next phase in life’s journey can be a nervous and apprehensive time, full of unknowns. Some young people are clear about their future journey post-school and are motivated to achieve… others may be not so sure.

To help and support our pupils moving on, we have created a guide called “The Employment Activities Plan” to reassure and inform parents about the wide range of post-school opportunities available in Clydesdale and across South Lanarkshire.

The guide can be found on the website Home page in the menu on the left hand side or click here.

Support and guidance for pupils leaving Carluke High School
This guide of post-school employment activities and opportunities is specifically for Carluke High School pupils and identifies key post-school pathways and providers available for Carluke High, Clydesdale and across South Lanarkshire. The guide can help our young people and their parents make informed choices for the future.

What the guide does
• The guide provides key messages about providers and organisations and information about the specific target/client group, referral process and, where appropriate, financial support.

• The Employment Activities Plan is designed to re-assure parents and young people, so they can make informed, realistic choices for their son and daughters about the range of available options leading to positive destinations.

If there is a nervousness and apprehension about post-school journey, the school is in a better position to help young people and parents make informed choices for the future.

Further advice
Pupil Support teachers and the school’s careers advisers can be contacted for further advice and guidance by contacting the school office on 01555 773680 and asking to speak to your child’s Pupil Support teacher or our career advisers Helen Sutton and Phyllis McCann.
