Feedback on Skills Development Scotland (SDS) career service


SDS works in close partnership with the school to support your child make informed career choices and would value feedback from parents and carers on their services. You can do this by taking a short survey.


All responses are confidential and anonymous, and the results will be used to inform SDS services.

The survey will be live from Monday 7 November 2022 to Wednesday 31 May 2023 and should only take about 10 minutes to complete.

We are incredibly lucky to work with an amazing team of careers advisers here in Oban High School. Margaret and Ewan can be found nearly everyday in Meeting Room 1.49 - This is next to the guidance base and heading towards the lift.


Margaret and Ewan meet with pupils on a 1 to 1 basis throughout the year. Various year groups are targeted to coincide with planning pathways and option choices, but they can be contacted directly if a young person needs something specific. They also deliver sessions to classes and support the guidance team. Click on the photo or name to email them directly!


In the coming sessions we are also excited to be working with Ceitidh, a trainee careers adviser, who will be able to deliver career advice in Gaelic. (picture to follow)
