Face big career decisions with confidence

We all go through changes at different stages of our working life. These include: 

  • starting a new role 
  • moving from education to work 
  • changing careers 
  • facing redundancy or being out of work 
  • preparing to reduce work or retire 

Building skills to help you navigate situations like these will benefit you throughout your working life. You'll be more confident and able to make better decisions to help you manage your career.

At their heart, career management skills are about happiness. If you build up your career management skills, you’ll realise your potential and be engaged in the world of work in a way that makes you fulfilled and therefore happier. Those are the crucial skills SDS careers advisers are working with people across the country to develop.Alison DunlopCareers Adviser, Skills Development Scotland
