Young people across Orkney will receive their exam results from SQA today (Tuesday 9 August). If your results are not what you expected, don’t panic you still have options – and there are experts on hand to help you navigate the next part of your journey.
From 8am on Tuesday 9 August, a dedicated Results Helpline from Skills Development Scotland (SDS) will run with Careers Advisers waiting to answer calls and offer advice, information and support to young people and their parents or carers.
You can call the helpline on 0808 100 8000. It will be open from 8am-8pm on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 August. Thereafter, it will be open on weekdays between 9am-5pm between Thursday 11 and Wednesday 17 August.
If you would rather speak to someone familiar, you can also contact Careers Advisers from the SDS team in Kirkwall. You can get in touch with them by calling (01856) 872 460 or emailing email@example.com.
