Careers Curriculum Resources

At Mill Green, Careers Education is taught both ‘as a subject’ and ‘through other subjects’, embedded in the curriculum. This means that careers learning and employability skills are taught discreetly and explicitly, ensuring that learners at Mill Green develop the skills and knowledge to be successful in their chosen career route. This approach also ensures that all learners at Mill Green, regardless of their need, are able to have meaningful and appropriate encounters that support their development, either socially, careers wise or both.

Some ideas and resources to support firm Careers Curriculum links are as follows:

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

Request support from your Careers Leader / Enterprise Coordinator  to bring in a guest speaker to talk to students about careers or to deliver part of a lesson. The STEM Ambassador Programme or Inspiring the Future can support with this 

Take a look at the Gatsby Benchmark Toolkit in particular Benchmark 4 



Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations, help you learn about different occupations and identify potential careers.

It provides access to a selection of UK headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects for different occupations, as well as description of the occupation.

Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. You can then look up another two occupations and compare. You can also select ‘display the UK average’ and compare the information with the occupation you have selected.
