Dear Pupils, Parents and Carers,

I wanted to get in touch to provide reassurance that during these concerning times, Skills Development Scotland’s absolute priority remains supporting individuals, employers, partners and colleagues through the effects of the pandemic.

• SDS is continuing to provide career, information, advice and guidance for all young people. Our school careers advisers are endeavouring to maintain contact with pupils and we are looking at how we can further develop on-line services to support them.
• We are already working with the SQA and other awarding bodies in relation to Foundation Apprenticeships. This work 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.

• You will be able to continue to contact the Careers Adviser for support. This will be done via telephone, Skype or online. To speak to a Careers Adviser please call our local centre on 01467 623623 (Inverurie Centre). Details of all our centres can be found on My World of Work. Calls are being automatically re-routed to advisers (all of whom are home-working).

Please be reassured that SDS Careers Advisers will continue to proactively contact pupils to offer them ongoing support.
