Exam Results Helpline 2022

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.

#NoWrongPath 2021

#NoWrongPath 2021

Tuesday 10th August 21 marked exam results day in Scotland, DYW West supported the #NoWrongPath campaign.

#NoWrongPath is a social media movement which provides inspiration and reassurance to young people receiving their exam results.

We recognise that some young people may feel disheartened by their exam results this year, particularly in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the disruption to both education and the job market.

#NoWrongPath helps to demonstrate that many people in interesting job roles across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there. It shows young people that there is #NoWrongPath to get to where you want to be.

The campaign shows young people the options that are available to them and that exam results are not necessarily the key to unlocking future success.
