Skills Development Scotland (SDS) would like to find out about how you talk to your child about careers and your awareness and use of our services. Your feedback will help us to understand your needs as parents and carers, and how we can improve our services.

In this survey, the term ‘Parent’ represents all types of parents and carers. This includes step-parents, guardians, other carers and parents. The term ‘Child’ represents the young person that you care for. We are particularly interested in finding out about your eldest school age child's experiences. Please answer the questions with this child in mind.

The survey should only take 10 minutes.
All participants have the chance to win one of four £100 Amazon gift cards. To enter the prize draw, please leave your details at the end of this survey.     

Your feedback may be used to report findings, but you will not be identified. If you take part in this research, you are agreeing to SDS using any personal data (eg postcode, gender, disability, ethnicity) for analysis. Our privacy policy and how we will use your information is located here: SDS Privacy Policy

Your personal data will be held until the project closes and then deleted by 31st May 2025. If you wish to withdraw your response please contact our Data Protection Officer at before this date.
