Aspirations, careers and challenging stereotypes

Added 04 Sep 2020 | Updated 22 Jun 21


These four resources explore aspirations, careers and challenging stereotypes. They are a perfect way to introduce career-related learning into your Key Stage 1 curriculum.

They include:

  • a resource to help children understand the link between literacy and the world of work
  • a poetry activity
  • a lesson to understand what is meant by gender stereotypes
  • a resource to explore personal qualities

These resources have been developed for primary schools as part of the Words for Work: Dream Big programme and funded by Lancôme. Words for Work: Dream Big works together with schools and local businesses to support Key Stage 1 pupils to develop their literacy skills, raise aspirations and challenge stereotypes.
