Skills Development Scotland

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is the national skills agency providing Scotland's career services, Scottish Apprenticeships, skills planning, employability skills for individuals and employer support for workforce development.

SDS supports individuals to build their career management, work-based and employability skills, throughout their career journey, from school into further learning opportunities and employment.

SDS works with employers and employer groups on a national, sectoral, regional, local and individual basis; supporting them to recognise and articulate their current and future skills needs and to engage with the skills system to help ensure it better meets those needs in the short, medium and longer term.
