Career Education: A World of Possibilities Leaflet

NPFS has developed a publication for parents which provides a helpful introduction to the new programme of career education.

Career education will deliver key entitlements to all of our children and young people. These will ensure that Scotland's children acquire the skills and knowledge they need so that they can reach the futures that are right for them. Have a look at the leaflet below for further details of how this will work and how parents can support their children.
