Skills Development Scotland can offer free and impartial advice on education, training, careers and jobs.

Carol Doona is the Careers Adviser for Grangemouth High School. She is in school for interviews on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays & is available for drop in questions on these days. Carol can be contacted at  Tel: 01324 660210.

Our Careers Adviser offers pupils group sessions, drop-in clinics and face-to-face coaching, where appropriate. This is supported by Scotland’s careers and information web service My World of Work
