• All staff should link curriculum learning with careers.
  • Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of future career paths.
  • By the age of 14, every student has had the opportunity to learn how different STEM subjects help people to gain entry to a wide range of careers. 
  • All subject teachers should emphasise the importance of succeeding in English and Maths. 

Some ideas to engage your classes with careers are as follows:

  • Show a short video clip as a starter activity using the resources on:


First Careers, careers advice school children



To show the relevance of lessons for future careers

  • Set a homework task to research different careers related to your subject.
  • Request support from your Careers Leader / Enterprise Coordinator to bring in a guest speaker to talk to students about careers or to deliver part of a lesson. The STEM Ambassador Programme or Inspiring the Future can give support with this.
