A free national helpline offering advice, information and support for young people.

Parents - who tend make a third of all calls it receives - can also use the service

The number to call is 0808 100 8000.

Lines are open from 8am until 8pm today and tomorrow. The service will operate between 9am and 5pm.

Qualified careers advisers are on hand to help young people who may not have received the results they were hoping for and those who have done better than anticipated.


These skilled professionals have unique access to information on UCAS course vacancies at UK colleges and universities, Confirmation and Clearing, advice about Modern and Foundation Apprenticeships and employment or volunteering.


Skills Development Scotland’s acting operations director James Russell said: “Our message for those young people and their parents and carers as the results arrive is not to panic.


“Everything might seem overwhelming at that point.

“Our experienced advisers are there to help and have information on all the options and opportunities young people can consider.”
