Careers information, advice and guidance has traditionally focussed on students in secondary school.  However, there is a growing understanding that children are starting to think about ‘what they want to be’ at a much younger age, and that they are ‘ruling out’ possible careers before they leave primary school.  

The aim of these CITE training materials is to support primary trainee teachers to include careers related learning in their teaching from the start of their career.  However, it could also be used as CPD for teachers who are already teaching in a school. 

The subject focus of the careers introduced are science and maths, however, the underpinning principles in each session are suitable for a whole school approach to career related learning.
