Your Child’s Future – Who Holds the Key?

Subject Choice is a very important stage in your child’s school life and can have an impact on their future.

Skills Development Scotland recognises this and one of our Careers Advisers may already have met your child in a group discussion to look at how to make choices.

We also offer the opportunity for your child to discuss their ideas individually with the school Careers Adviser. As an important influence on your child’s ideas you may wish to attend this discussion.

If you are interested in this support please could you complete the information in the contact form below. We will then be in touch in due course to make arrangements for this.
