Support for secondary pupils and school leavers

We understand it's a difficult and uncertain time due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. 

With schools and careers centres closed from 5 January, following the latest temporary lockdown across mainland Scotland, we want you to know that we're still here for you.

If you had an appointment arranged with your school careers adviser, they'll be in touch to rearrange over the phone or video chat.  

If you want to speak to a careers adviser, contact your local centre or call our helpline on 0800 917 8000 for more information. Our helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. You can also speak to an adviser using our live chat, the button will appear when an adviser is available. 

We have lots of help and advice here on My World of Work. Get started on your to-do list in your My World of Work account and find more information on this page.
