Skills Development Scotland provides career information, advice and guidance in schools and its centres across the country. 

Careers services

Our Career Information Advice and Guidance (CIAG) services focus on equipping Scotland’s current and future workforce with the Career Management Skills (CMS) they require to achieve their potential.

The work we do in schools increasingly is focusing on engaging with young people earlier in their academic life and supporting them through to their entry into sustained employment. Our greater interaction with industry means we can factor in the projected demand for skills in the future.

Skilled advisers are also based in community and partner premises across Scotland, and can be reached at our Customer Contact Centre.

Our award-winning web service, My World of Work also provides trustworthy, expert information and advice – free to access at any time, for people at any stage in their career.

The careers services we provide for individuals are shaped by the Scottish Government’s Career Information, Advice and Guidance Strategy and the recent refresh of the Youth Employment Strategy, which aligns with the recommendations of the Commission on Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce (DSYW).
