Why embed careers into the curriculum?
Young adults who recall four or more encounters with employers while at school are five times less likely to be NEET and earn on average, 18% more than peers who recall no such activities
Dr Anthony Mann, Director of Research and Policy and Education Taskforce
It is important that we offer pupils:
- New inspiration – You could be providing the single inspirational moment that changes the direction of a pupils life
- Motivation – Pupil see subjects are relevant to the real world and therefore why it’s important to study them
Here are a few simple things that you can do:
- Create a careers corner in your classroom
- Create careers displays within your faculty area
- Include pathways a pupil could take at ages 16 and 18
- Highlight essential skills that link to activites
- Could you frame your lesson with a job role or job sector?
- Display websites & events
- Be personal, share your own education and career journey
- Build relationships with parents, businesses & organisations
- Invite alumni!
