Following a successful first campaign in 2021, Scottish Careers Week is back from 7-11 November, with the aim of highlighting the amazing career support available across Scotland.
Great career support helps people find their passion and thrive. It showcases exciting future opportunities in Scotland’s key industries, matches employers with local talent, and can make a real and lasting difference.
That’s why we launched Scottish Careers Week in 2021 and will return this year from 7-11 November. With more events, activities and resources we’ll encourage people of all ages to shape the future and shine a light on the support that’s available across Scotland to make positive choices.
There are a range of events happening that can be accessed nationally including a 20-part DYW Live industry expert programme for pupils. View external events
Locally, we are focusing on being in schools, centres and communities. Our centre opening times for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are at
https://www.myworldofwork.co.uk/centres/ for anyone to drop-in.
If you are at or near ASDA at the Beach, Aberdeen on Wednesday 9th November 11-3pm then please drop-in to say hello. We will have a stall there to highlight the all-age guidance and careers support available.
We are launching the NE My World of Work Treasure Hunt to help pupils to start exploring their strengths, careers and opportunities. Pupils can take part via MS Forms https://forms.office.com/r/3cN1bc27X6 with a £25 gift voucher up for grabs for the first with the right answers pulled out of the hat. The competition opens at 7am on Monday 7th and it will close for entries at 5pm on the 11th Nov.
We are delighted to be working with Aberdeenshire Council’s FA team during the week to contribute to their fantastic enrichment programme for their Foundation Apprenticeship pupils.
We are also very pleased to be working with our partners at NESCol to provide Personal Statement advice to students from our College Careers Advisers Margaret Arrieta Rosado (Gallowgate and Altens) and Sharon Tulloch (Fraserburgh campus) on the 8th November at 2pm.
