Skills Development Scotland support

As schools across Scotland are closed to the majority of pupils, Skills Development Scotland careers advisers will continue to provide careers information and advice by phone and digitally. Kirsty Wright is our fabulous adviser and she will contact pupils who were scheduled to have a face-to-face appointments to make alternative arrangements.

Pupils might be starting to think about Subject Choices at this time and that could be an ideal time to speak to SDS. Career information and advice is available online for anyone who needs it at My World of Work.  You can also contact your local centre to speak to an adviser or call the SDS helpline on 0800 917 8000.

This is also the perfect opportunity for parents and carers – to join the conversation and discuss where their options might take young people in the future. You’ll also find lots of helpful tools and information to help with subject choices, on the careers service website, My World of Work. Visit
