My Kid’s Career is our web service for parents and carers to help parents and carers support their children to make career decisions, guided by information on the future world of work.

Working with organisations and employers at a national and local level, we’ve got the up-to-date jobs information to provide a detailed picture of the skills in demand and the skills that'll be relevant in the future.

We use this intelligence to inform our career management service, encouraging people into jobs that suit their skills, strengths and ambitions – and, in turn, help build a modern and prosperous Scottish economy.

But to make our work effective, we need to deliver it in partnership with parents.

Research shows that parents and carers are the biggest influence on a child’s career decisions.

Which is why we’ve developed a new site, My Kid’s Career, which offers expert advice to help parents and carers support their child make decisions.

This includes:

Jobs in demand for information on Scotland’s labour
market. Find out where the biggest opportunities for
skills will be, now and in the future.

Routes and pathways supported by details of the
different routes into those careers.

Career discussions and hints and tips on speaking to their child about those opportunities at the times that matter.
