Skills Development Scotland

  • SDS is continuing to provide career, information, advice and guidance for all young people.  In readiness, our school careers advisers have completed a checklist to ensure that a continuity in service delivery is maintained and this has been communicated to key colleagues in our schools.
  • We are working with the SQA and other awarding bodies in relation to Foundation Apprenticeships. This will support their guidance for individuals and learning providers to ensure that the effects of disruption are minimised and that wherever possible, apprentices and learners are not negatively impacted in the longer term.

We will seek to keep all our partners updated on these developments moving forward.

  • Colleagues, pupils and their parents and carers can continue to contact their Careers Adviser for support. This will be done via telephone, Skype or online. To speak to a Careers Adviser can you call your local centre on 0141 429 1999. Details of all our centres can be found on My World of Work. Messaging can be provided for your communication channels. Please be reassured that SDS Careers Advisers will continue to proactively contact pupils to offer them ongoing support.
  • To continue to share social media posts from SDS social channels to inform teachers, pupils, parents and carers of our ongoing support.
