What works: Career-related learning in primary

We have been awarded funding from the Careers and Enterprise Company to compile evidence on the career-related learning of primary aged children’s decisions, aspirations and attitudes.

In doing so our research will map key actions being taken by primary schools to support children’s transitions to secondary school and beyond. It considers how primary schools approach career-related learning and offers guidance on evidence-based practice. It aims to clarify the impact that can be expected for children taking part in career-related learning activities. It is hoped the findings will help to inform policy, research and practice, outlining how primary schools and their partners can further strengthen careers-related learning both within and outside of the classroom.
