Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum learning to careers



The three main ways of delivering careers in the curriculum are:

• Providing career learning as a subject in its own right: in this approach careers content is delivered as a discrete curriculum, e.g. careers education or as part of PSHE.
• Incorporating career learning within other subjects: In this approach careers content is delivered through subjects, e.g. personal financial planning skills taught in maths, self-presentation skills taught in English.
• Organising career learning through co-curriculum activities (e.g. enrichment activities strongly connected to the formal curriculum: In this approach careers content is delivered through informal and voluntary learning activities which have a strong connection to the curriculum e.g. STEM clubs to build on student’s interest in science, technology, engineering and maths.
