Careers Education Teaching Ideas and Free Classroom Resources
The Internet Helps Teachers Give Students A Real Flavour of Career Paths
In the last century careers guidance was traditionally a meet with the school teacher, followed by a read through bog standard literature in the careers library, but the internet has changed all that. You can find a wealth of free teaching resources that allow pupils to learn all about career choices. There is video footage, company portfolios, and what do you want to do quizzes galore. Many of the UKs larger companies run their own careers portals so you can encourage pupils to do a bit of their own research too.
