Development of NUSTEM’s secondary careers resources is supported by the Future Me project.
Careers in the Curriculum
The Gatsby Good Career Guidelines recommend that careers options are explored within subject classrooms… and also highlight that schools found this difficult to achieve.
This CPD session is intended for whole science and/or maths departments. During the session we will look at the benefits to students of including careers as a context in teaching, and share examples of how teachers can work together as departments to do this. We also use our own secondary worksheets (see below) as examples, sharing how we think they can be used to best effect.
Unconscious bias and career choices
Unconscious biases are an integral part of human evolution: they allow us to make quick decisions based on the evidence at our disposal. This session examines the science behind unconscious bias, helps participants begin to understand our own biases, and explores how teachers and advisors can work to ensure that pupils make career decisions that are right for them.
Contact us for further information. The CPD is offered at no charge to schools involved in the NECOP ‘Future Me‘ project.
