SDS Career Advisors

Over summer, any school leaver who is looking for support from SDS should phone their helpline on 0800 917 8000 Mon-Fri 9am-5pm

Any pupil on our school roll can contact Eastwood High’s Career Advisors, Karen Rees on 07887993465 Mon-Wed and Gina Kelly on 07771 505 766 Tues-Thurs for support.

From next session, Karen and Gina may call home, in addition to meeting pupils in school, in order to support pupils in S4,S5,S6 whilst blended learning is in place.


Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS)

SAAS would like us to inform our pupils that it is ‘business as usual’ and their Online Application service is now open.  Their General Enquiry Unit are dealing with email and voicemail correspondence on a daily basis. Pupils can get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ option on their online account if they have any specific queries.

They are currently working on a toolkit of support available and scheduling online sessions on their Social Media channels which will be shared with you in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, they have attached a link to their Application Help video that may be useful for pupils to view before completing their application for support.

Please feel free to use any of the other videos that appear on their YouTube channel –
