A Primary school careers pilot was delivered in 2021 – 2022, as part of the programme we created the Primary Careers Framework based on the Gatsby Benchmarks. The framework mirrors the one developed for 11-18 education establishments and is a tool to help guide you on delivering careers education provision to your pupils.

Benefits to pupils:

  • Activities were designed to help raise aspirations and broaden children’s horizons and give them self-belief by putting careers education in the curriculum and connecting learning to life.
  • It provided engaging, hands-on experiences that students need to explore real-life STEM and Enterprise concepts.
  • It Supported the development of non-academic skills such as enterprise, financial awareness, behaviours, and life skills.
  • Improved pupils’ knowledge of different educational and employment pathways, helping them to make informed choices when planning their futures.

Benefits to schools:

  • Helps you start careers education early! Complementing and enhancing your schools’ current career related learning throughout Key Stage 1 and 2 and supporting transition into Key Stage 3.
  • Improves teachers’ knowledge and skills around careers education.
  • Helps your school establish strong, meaningful links with local businesses and industry leaders, through employer engagement opportunities.
  • Access age-appropriate career-related activities that support curriculum planning.
