How we can help

Dyslexia Scotland can help dyslexic people to take the next step in their career, whatever stage it may be at. We understand the challenges that dyslexia brings but we also know that people with dyslexia can achieve their potential. Our career guidance and employability support is for dyslexic people of all ages. This small service is led by full time staff member Katie, a Registered Career Development Professional, with support from experienced volunteer Career Mentors who provide one to one support in areas such as:

  • Understanding your strengths

  • Planning a career path

  • Help with application forms

  • Improving your CV

  • Preparing for job interviews

  • Accessing services and opportunities to help you progress
