Career-related learning in your school

Added 29 Apr 2020

This video resource will outline easy and time-efficient ways to introduce or improve career-related learning in your classroom.

Evidence shows that career-related learning has a positive impact on children and young people. It provides a real life, authentic experience of the workplace and allows them to draw better links between their current and future imagined lives. A recent poll in Tes showed that 97% of teachers said that introducing children to the world of work can be very influential in broadening aspirations and bringing learning to life.

This resource has been developed for primary schools as part of the Words for Work: Dream Big programme. Words for Work: Dream Big works together with schools and local businesses to support supporting Key Stage 1 pupils to develop their literacy skills, raise aspirations and challenge stereotypes.
