Scottish Careers Week 2023: Shape the Future

Now in its third year, Scottish Careers Week is a Skills Development Scotland campaign aimed at shining a light on the support that's available to everyone across Scotland to make positive career choices and shape their future.

There are lots of ways to get involved, whether you are an employer, a teacher in a school or the parent/carer of a young person.


  • If you are delivering any activities for young people in schools via DYW North East, you can share these using the hashtag #ScotCareersWeek23.
  • Organising a careers-related event - like an apprenticeship open evening - of your own? List it for free here for extra exposure.
  • Encourage your team members to get involved by downloading the 'How It Started' and 'How It's Going' graphics. Simply complete these and share on social media from 13-17 November. Don't forget to include #ScotCareersWeek23 in your post!



  • Register for a free online event on 16 November from 1830-1915hrs to learn more about post-school career options for senior phase pupils.
