Paisley and Renfrewshire South MP Mhairi Black has highlighted the help and advice that is available for students across Renfrewshire as pupils prepare to receive exam results.
Skills Development Scotland (SDS) has a variety of options to support learners from 7th August onwards. Getting your results can be a stressful time, and some people struggle to decide what to do next. SDS has support services available over the phone, online and in person.
Learners, parents and carers can call the Exam Results Helpline to speak with one of SDS’s trained advisers about their options. From apprenticeships to UCAS Clearing, college to employment, they have information on what you can do next.
Scotland’s online careers service ‘My World of Work’ has lots of useful articles and information to help you plan your future. You can the articles at myworldofwork.co.uk/examresults.
SDS Careers Centre’s are located nationwide, and careers advisers are available year-round – not just on results day – to offer advice on your career options. Find your nearest centre at myworldofwork.co.uk/centres.
Mhairi Black MP said: “Getting your exam results can be a very stressful time, and it is reassuring that we have this service in place to support our pupils and students.”
“If you do not receive the results that you had hoped for, help is on hand to support you and it is important that you stay calm and look to the future rather than beating yourself up about the past.
“I wish everyone all the very best of luck with their results and all the best for the future.”
The exam results helpline opens tomorrow and Wednesday from 8am-8pm, and from Thursday 9th-15th August 9am-5pm.
