Itís subject choice time for many pupils across Scotland - the first step in thinking about a career pathway. Your pupils can use our interactive online tool to help with this important decision. It is designed to help pupils relate subjects to careers and give them ideas of what they can do with certain subjects.

This online tool is suitable for pupils entering S3, S4, S5 and S6, it allows them to:

  • choose what level of qualification they would ultimately like to study to
  • choose up to 10 subjects, depending on their year
  • view careers and job profiles relating to their choices.

If they have a Planit Portfolio account, they can even save up to six combinations of subjects.

New Career Pathways

Career Pathways are our new resource available on Planit to help pupils with subject choice. These one page infographics are available across 24 Career areas, and enable young people to see what careers a subject can lead to and the academic or vocational routes available. They can explore these by National subject or by career area. In addition, they can also see which life skills, qualities and interests are helpful for these careers.
