Coming soon! New profiling tool for secondary school pupils

A recent Education Scotland briefing stated that by the end of S3, all young people should have produced their own profile, supported by staff, which gives a reliable and full account of their cumulative progress and achievements. 

In light of this, we’ve been working with a range of national and local partners to develop a new profile solution which encourages users to think about, and reflect on, their tool results. They can then capture their summaries before going on to form a personal statement. Users can also add details of their education, experience and achievements to their profile. 

By creating their own profile, pupils can begin to understand more about themselves, their strengths and their future goals. Using this information, they can explore the world of work from job profiles, vacancies and courses, the growth industries, and search for volunteering opportunities.

We’re in the final stages of testing and are looking forward to bringing you more information soon.
