An urgent message from Education and Employers Research
We would like to invite you to share your valuable views on introducing children to the world of work and career provisions in primary.
The importance of early intervention in addressing the perceptions’ young people hold about careers and the range of possibilities ahead of them is widely recognised. Despite a range of evidence outlining the importance of engagement with careers from an early age, it is clear that more needs to be done to fully understand the role of careers at in the primary phase.
We are now working in collaboration with Teach First to understand better what works in primary.
The first phase of the research is a survey to find out what primary schools are doing to develop pupils’ understanding of the world of work and the challenges they face in doing so. We want to better define how primary schools can best plan and deliver career provision in primary school.
The findings from the survey will help define best practice by identifying what activities primary schools are currently doing and to establish where additional support and training is needed.
As part of this project we are interested in finding a number of schools to use as exemplar case studies.
If you are interested in discussing your great practices in greater depth please leave your email address at the end of the survey.
The survey takes around 7-10 minutes of your time. We close the survey on 29th JULY 2018.
