Meeting the needs of all students is an important element of best practice in career education. With a focus on EAL/D students, this workshop will explore strategies teachers can adopt to integrate career learning in their lessons and help EAL/D students to develop the knowledge and capabilities required to navigate a changing world of work. 

By enriching their teaching practice and recognising the role they can play in supporting the career development of EAL/D students, teachers should also help to broaden students’ horizons and help prepare them for transitions during and beyond school.

Research highlights that integrating career learning in the curriculum for EAL/D students enhances their learning and broadens their horizons.                                               

Key takeaways                 

  • increased understanding of the role teachers can play in supporting the career development of EAL/D students
  • strategies for integrating career learning within the curriculum to further support EAL/D students
  • demystifying the myths related to the career aspirations of EAL/D students
  • exploration of career frameworks relevant to EAL/D students
