Information for staff

As teachers and school staff, we have a huge impact on the aspirations and career goals of young people. Studies suggest that, after parents, subject teachers are the second biggest influence on a young person’s career aims and choices.

Not only are we hugely influential role models for how our students conduct themselves, but our passion for our subjects can inspire students to consider how they might move into a subject-related profession. As part of Gatsby Benchmark 4 – Linking Careers to the curriculum - each department is required to embed careers-related activities into their curriculum. 

The Careers and Enterprise Company have a huge range of resources and guidance on how to successfully deliver careers education within subject areas. This document can be accessed here.

This document includes advice, tips and case studies for embedding careers into your subject area.
