Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is the national careers service.  In school, SDS advisers support pupils with planning and preparing for their next steps.  The school careers Advisor is Natasha Finlay. She is in school Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and is based in N4 (in the Maths and Science block).

Natasha offer pupils appointments via their Guidance Teacher or they can drop in to N4 during break and lunch times to arrange appointments, or she can offer appointments after school if they are willing to stay back.  She is also available if parents and carers want to meet/attend along with pupils.

If you would like to discuss your child’s future plans,  please arrange an appointment by contacting Natasha on the following:
