Careers Fair 2022

As part of the Building Bridges activity Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with West Dunbartonshire Council, SDS, DYW West and West College Scotland under the banner of "InspireWDC" to create a virtual careers fair.

Running from Monday 7th February – Friday 11th February 2022, the event is aimed at pupils in their senior phase and also pupils in S1 – S3 who are looking for inspiration and ideas about their future. Fantastic daily content includes information about DYW Initiatives, Industry Insights, Pathways, Career Guidance and all things Employability!

The content collated by Dunbartonshire Chamber is digital and recorded so will be available online as a resource here with plans to refine and update on an ongoing basis. If you are a parent or pupil at a West Dunbartonshire school then you will have access to the additional resources via Google classrooms and via your careers/DYW teacher at your school.
