Careers In The Curriculum – National Careers Week

Suggested Age Range: All
Hours to Prepare & Review: 1
Type of Activity: Careers talk

During National Careers Week schools across Cornwall took the opportunity to start every lesson by talking about the careers linked to their subject.

To help work towards Benchmark 4 of the Gatsby Benchmarks teachers used a combination of sources to research the types of jobs linked to their subject including:

Career Pilot
BBC Bitesize Careers

This worked most effectively when members of the senior leadership team supported the plan and staff were well briefed prior to National Careers Week itself.

Some staff took the talks one step further and invited in a business contact to speak to students about careers linked to their subject.
