Growth Industries

Successful pathways for our pupils are intended to provide them with opportunity to move into a positive and sustained destination after school.

It is useful for our learners to be aware of growth sectors in the economy when they are making decisions about their future pathways. This can highlight to pupils if their chosen pathway will provide them with a sustainable job after they have achieved a qualification or completed their training. The Scottish Government defines the seven areas of growth as:

Food, Drink & Agriculture
Digital & Creative Industries
Sustainable Tourism
Energy & Engineering
Financial & Business Services
Life Sciences
Public & Service Sector
