Primary Futures – Putting Career-Related Learning Research into Practice

Using Primary Futures to make careers links to topic learning

Targeted at both experienced and new Primary Futures users, join us to unpack the key findings of our two major recent reports that synthesise all the evidence to make an unequivocal case for embedding career-related learning and aspirational activities into school life, both curricular and extra-curricular. We look at what the findings mean for you as a practitioner committed to raising aspirations and how pupils benefit in subject learning and soft skills. We hear how other schools have used Primary Futures database of thousands of volunteers ready to inspire pupils in innovative ways for school improvement objectives, raising underachievement, pupil premium strategy, making curriculum topic links and various other objectives to meet pupil needs.
