Careers Support - Teaching Resources

Explore our collection of classroom resources focused on careers guidance. These resources for primary and secondary schools could be used to mark National Careers Week, which takes place 2 - 7 March 2020.

Below you'll find collections of short films that aim to inspire pupils and introduce them to the world of work.

The collection includes:

  • A series of short films for primary schools looking at the jobs and careers people have today and the lives of significant individuals in the past.
  • A series of short films for secondary schools following a group of teenagers as they try being an apprentice for the day in a variety of different jobs.
  • Short films in which Labrinth explains different ways to use your voice in everyday life. He reveals techniques to get your message across in a variety of situations, from news reading to being a tour guide.
BBC Bitesize Careers has some great advice from leading careers experts and over 200 job case studies from people who've found the right path for them. See the link at the bottom of this page for more information.
