Planning For Your Future

Careers Events

A variety of careers events are on offer across Dumfries and Galloway to support young people in making an informed choice about future pathways.

Increasingly, schools are working together to hold coordinated, area events which encourages a wider range of employers and training providers to attend, tailored to employment opportunities in a given area. Please check the calendar for up and coming events.

Further and higher education fairs and recruitment fairs are also held annually to promote the range of opportunities available in Dumfries and Galloway and beyond. Many schools also continue to hold individual careers events and the DYW regional group are working with schools to encourage employers to participate.
