Message to parents from Jolene at SDS


Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the closure of the school, Skills Development Scotland cannot deliver career services face to face, but they are still there to help. Your child can contact their school Careers Adviser, Jolene Keddie for career information, advice and guidance  or visit My World of Work


You can also still access their career services. Call your local centre to speak to one of our qualified advisers. Find your nearest centre at My World of Work: Centres.

You can also find their services for parents/carers online at My World of Work and

Their qualified Careers Advisers work in schools and in their careers centres across the whole of Scotland.


Our SDS Careers Adviser is Jolene Keddie and you can get in touch with her through the school 


The SDS Careers Adviser will be there for our pupils all through school, helping them to get ready for what they'll do when they leave. One of the main things our Careers Adviser will help our pupils do is to develop their Career Management Skills, which are the skills pupils need to make their career a success. 


The work of SDS Careers Advisers is supported by their careers website My World of Work. SDS Careers Advisers also offer support to parents and carers when it comes to talking about careers. Any parent or carer wishing to speak with the careers adviser can make an appointment with the school or contact Sam direct. My world of work also has a dedicated parents section
