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 7-12 March 2022.

To celebrate National Careers Week 2022, Bitesize Careers will be hosting a series of panel discussions exploring jobs in Healthcare, Media and Journalism, Sport, Music and Arts, and Technology. Each panel will feature people working within these sectors, giving students real-life insight into work life, along with top tips for thinking about their own career paths.

Check back on this page nearer to National Careers Week for more information. In the meantime, there’s plenty to help you plan for NCW, including resources for students to explore careers by job sector, or scroll down to explore our Teach collections of short films to introduce pupils to the world of work.

BBC Bitesize Careers has some great advice from leading careers experts and over 350 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.
