Dyslexic Career Journeys

Dyslexia Scotland has published a resource for parents and career educators, to help nurture young dyslexic people’s career potential and wants parents and career educators to take part in a trial of its use. 

Young dyslexic people, who often possess creative and dynamic thinking skills, tend to feel like fish out of water in their learning environments and consequently in their career development. Often, the grown-ups who support them look to Dyslexia Scotland for advice on how to help. 

This resource will be helpful to a wide range of adult or peer helpers involved in career education for young people, including: career advisers, coaches, training providers, employability workers, youth and community workers, work coaches, job club volunteers, workplace mentors, guidance teachers, lecturers, parents, carers and other skilled helpers.  

There are a limited number of hard copies available for educators who are willing to be involved in a community of practice, to take part in a long-term evaluation of the resource and provide feedback on how you are using it, quarterly for up to one year. If you are able to use the resource in your setting and would be interested in helping Dyslexia Scotland to review and develop the resource further, please express interest at: https://forms.office.com/r/Ry5vZniSVx by 30 May 2021. 

Dyslexic Career Journeys is also available as a free download from https://www.dyslexiascotland.org.uk/career-guidance-resources
