Careers Education & Guidance

Careers News

Merchiston Castle School Staff Conversations

It is often said that the purpose of education is to prepare pupils for the next step of their journey. In a fast paced world, in terms of technological advancement and changes to both education and the world of employment, it is perhaps more apt to say that it should prepare your son for the challenges of adapting to, and the shaping of, this world.

Developing this adaptability requires both an educational element: providing an environment in which self-awareness can be developed, leading to a focus on developing a range of skills and attributes; and a guidance element: being aware of the choices to be made at each stage of education, having good quality information to hand to aid this, and the implications of the choices made.

Dr D Cartwright  Academic Leadership Team

The main aim of Careers Education and Guidance at Merchiston is to enable your son to make informed choices at relevant stages.  At the core of this lies the development of skills and attributes relevant to lifelong learning and career progression.
