Linking curriculum learning to careers
All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. STEM subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
In lesson planning and during Careers Week, in particular, subjects complete lessons based around careers in their subject. E.g. careers in Science. This gives students an insight into the different careers they could go into using each of their qualifications. There is also a focus in the newsletter on a different career option each week including relevant qualifications required. Subject areas are encouraged to run a mini Careers Fair focusing on careers related to their subject and this enables students to value the importance of subjects and how they link to future aspirations.
