Research shows that career-related learning needs to start in primary schools so that students can expand their horizons rather than limit their opportunities. Primary schools provide an ideal time to help students learn about the world of work and the variety of jobs available (some of which don’t even exist yet). Importantly, it helps break down any stereotypes and notions they may have about careers.
If you want to learn how to help broaden students’ aspirations and positively impact their future life choices, attending this event will increase your knowledge of providing quality career-related learning in your school.
Research highlights that integrating career learning in primary schools helps increase student engagement, gives inspiration to students, and can lead to better career outcomes for students in the long run.
