Candidates being supported and organised.

Assessors do their best to support their candidates to ensure they complete their qualifications. We have responsibilities to them, as they have commitment to us. For example we have a variety of resources available to all students using learning assistant (LA).  All resources are kept up to date and include current Legislation.  We also have a multitude of paper resources for those candidates not on Learning Assistant.

Candidates can help greatly if:


You ALWAYSbring your portfolios with you every time you meet with your assessor. Your assessor has to be able to keep track of your progress.


If any of your personal details have changed such as:

  • Phone number
  • Email
  • Address
  • Name

YOU IMMEDIATELY inform your assessor or contact our head office on 013827749158. It is a requirement from SDS that a new Training Agreement must be signed and show the change of details that have taken place.


You inform your assessor of the dates ASAP. Your assessor can then plan ahead to organize review dates and any extra support that may need to be given ensuring your progress.

Text message service from SDS

Can we remind all students who are funded by Skills Development Scotland that once your review has been processed you will receive a text message or email from SDS.  YOU MUST reply to this ASAP with the letter “Y” to ensure SDS has confirmation of your progress. You will also receive this message for a final time when you have completed your VQ.
