Unison Skills Development Scotland branch, which represents over 70 per cent of SDS careers advisers, notes with interest your article, "Careers `traffic-light' code halts the personal touch", 28 September.

Our members have been expressing concerns on an informal basis that the new way of working in schools will result in a reduction in the availability of high quality face-to-face advice to all school pupils.
