Results? Your career service is here to help
Whatever your results are, you have options!
Skills Development Scotland (SDS) delivers Scotland’s career service. SDS results support will provide help and advice to learners, their parents and carers at what could be an uncertain time. The SDS Results Helpline number is 0808 100 8000. This helpline goes live at 8am on results day, Tuesday 9 August.
SDS's expert advisers will have access to information on course vacancies at UK colleges and universities, Confirmation and Clearing, advice about Foundation, Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships and jobs, volunteering or staying on at school. SDS's expert advisers are at the end of the phone to help young people and their parents and carers.
There's lots of support on Scotland's career website, My World of Work – it’s packed with advice, information and resources for both young people and their parents and carers. If you'd prefer to speak to someone in person, you can visit an SDS centre to speak to an adviser about your results and next steps. Find your nearest one at myworldofwork.co.uk/centres.
If you cannot use a telephone and need a different way to contact SDS, you can send them a direct message on Facebook. This may help if you: • are deaf, or have hearing loss • use British Sign Language (BSL) • have a speech, language or communication need • have difficulty using the telephone.
BSL users can also use Contact Scotland BSL. You can use their app to sign with an interpreter who will make the phone call for you. Visit contactscotland-bsl.
