All teachers should link curriculum learning with careers. 

• Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject teachers should highlight the relevance of STEM subjects for a wide range of
  future career paths. 

• By the age of 14, every student has had the opportunity to learn how the different STEM subjects help people to gain entry to a wide range of careers. 

• All subject teachers emphasise the importance of succeeding in English and maths. 

Some ideas to engage your classes with careers are as follows: 

 Show a short video clip as a starter activity using the resources on careersbox / icould / firstcareers or BBC bitesize careers to show the relevance of
    lessons for possible future careers 

 Discuss careers linked to specific parts of your curriculum —use this website to help you https://nationalcareers.service.gov.uk/explore-careers 

 Set a homework task to research different careers related to your subject.
