Update from Skills Development Scotland
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.
If your child is choosing their subjects, you’ll find lots of helpful tools and information to help with subject choices, on the careers service website, My World of Work. Visit www.myworldofwork.co.uk/subjectchoices
Please be aware that career information and advice is available online for anyone (all ages) who needs it at My World of Work. You can also contact your local centreto speak to an adviser or call the SDS helpline on 0800 917 8000.

New SCHOLAR video- Information for Parents and Carers
Many parents and carers are curious about online learning, and would like to find out more about resources that can be used to enliven at-home learning.
To give parents and carers a sense of the variety of engaging activities available, SCHOLAR have produced a new 3 minute video, “Information for Parents and Carers”, aimed, primarily, at parents and carers of learners in S3-S6.
Our new video is available at https://bit.ly/ParentsAndCarersInfo
Graeme O’Neill the SDS careers adviser will be contacting pupils during the lockdown period for pre – arranged telephone careers appointments. This will be an opportunity to discuss various opportunities including applying for college, apprenticeships and other options. If you feel that you/your child would benefit from a careers appointment please contact Graeme at firstname.lastname@example.org
Normally all S3 pupils would have had a careers interview with Graeme by now. This is usually helpful before course choices are made for moving into S4. Graeme is offering to telephone any pupil that would like help to make their choices. Please let your PT PCS know as soon as possible if you would like to Graeme to call you, please also include the telephone number you would like him to call you on.
