COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is still here to support you and your pupils. You can use the information and resources on My World of Work. We can also provide one-to-one career information, advice and guidance services. To speak to an adviser please call 0800 917 8000. Our helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.

Spark career conversations with your primary class using our fun tools and classroom activities.

Your pupils can explore what they’re good at, where their interests lie and start building their skills for the world of work.

Why use it?

The tools and resources:

Pupils at Holy Cross Primary

Classroom activities

To bring the experience to life, we’ve developed activities that you can do in class.

They’ve been designed to support the use of the digital tools, and to allow you to explore even more aspects of work with your pupils.

There’s a natural progression through the activities, as laid out on the primary teacher section on the partner resources page.

The activity outline provides guidance on the stage or year group that the activity is geared towards.

Beyond primary school

My World of Work has a range of tools to help your pupils as they progress onto secondary school. 

Pupils can build on what they’ve learned in their primary accounts, and there are secondary teacher resources to support and further explore career options in the classroom. 

There are also professionally qualified Skills Development Scotland (SDS) careers advisers in every state secondary school in Scotland. 

They offer career information, advice and guidance (CIAG) from S1.
