Inspire the Future Workforce

A Career Inspiration Series

Developing the Young Workforce Dundee & Angus (DYW) in partnership with Barnardo’s Works, Angus Council and Dundee City Council have launched an exciting new series of Career Inspiration Videos created to Inspire the Future Workforce.

This will be an ongoing project with the hope to publish two videos each week on a Tuesday and Thursday (w/c Monday 14th September for the foreseeable future).

These short 5-10 minute pre-recorded videos will consist of a Q&A with individuals from a range of different jobs across Dundee and Angus to highlight the different pathways young people can take.

We hope that these videos can be utilised within schools and other organisations that support young people to help them gain an insight into the different careers available locally. These videos highlight the importance of #NoWrongPath as we hear about the diverse career journeys that led these individuals to their current job.
