Bringing speakers from the world of work LIVE! into schools

Careers in the Classroom offers children the chance to hear from these experts in their own words and to question those who do these jobs day in, day out. Children could meet anyone from mechanics and engineers to stage actors and social media stars. Events take place in the early afternoon, twice per half term and are pitched for children in Years 5 to 8.

Inspiring Children

Careers in the Classroom seeks to provide learning opportunities and develop cultural capital to benefit everyone, including the most disadvantaged. This will inspire children to build a vision of their own future, to see the opportunities that can be their future and support the Gatsby Good Career Guidance Benchmarks.

These sessions include:

  • lesson material to explore before the talk to help pupils understand this area of work and to ask more informed questions.
  • On the day, the speaker will present for 15 minutes alongside an ExpertEd host followed by a 15-20 min Q&A session.
  • Post-event activities will be suggested so that children can put what they have learned into practice into practice the career related information and see how this links to what they learn in the classroom.
