Outline of the course
The CITE training consists of three training sessions and associated ‘gap’ tasks. Each session lasts about 1.5 hours. The time needed to complete the gap tasks varies depending on the task. After each gap task, teachers complete a self-reflective evaluation exercise.
Session 1: Careers Education and Unconscious Bias
Gap Task 1: Exploring unconscious bias in primary schools
Session 2: Career aspirations in primary school
Gap Task 2: Planning and teaching using the Primary Careers Tool
Session 3: Employability characteristics and role models
Gap Task 3: Planning and teaching using STEM Person of the Week
The training materials, and a presenters guide, will be made available for ITE providers, and for schools to use once the project is completed.
