As teachers in the academy we already know that education is a lifelong learning process for everyone. It is important therefore that students understand the clear links between what they are learning as part of the curriculum and how it can support them towards gaining qualifications and skills for particular career paths.
Around the academy there are Career posters, so that everyone can see how each subject can offer the students opportunities to access specific career pathways. As teachers it is important to have current career information linked to their own subject.
There are many opportunities for teachers to develop their own understanding of careers by CPD in the academy but accessing training opportunities from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). A current understanding of the development of STEM subjects, will enable students to be better informed about the opportunities available to them.
'STEM Learning is the largest provider of education and careers support in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We work with schools, colleges and others working with young people across the UK. Supported by a unique partnership of Government, charitable trusts and employers, we are dedicated to raising young people’s engagement and achievement in STEM subjects and careers.
STEM’S professional development has proven impact on participants’ personal practice, their wider school and ultimately, on young people themselves, encouraging more of them to progress into STEM related careers. https://www.stem.org.uk/enthuse-placements
