What is Careers Lab?

A teacher can only do so much. We’ve got a textbook, we’ve got our own input from other areas, but actually getting first hand evidence from someone in the industry is incredible

Careers Lab seeks to provide ‘Business Ambassadors', volunteers from business or in employment who bring their knowledge and experience of the work to the classroom to help inspire and motivate students to start thinking about their own careers.

Importantly, teachers deliver the lessons, briefing all the activities and facilitating class and group discussions. The teacher will then invite the business volunteers to give an employability perspective, and provide feedback, throughout each of the activities. The teacher will also facilitate a question and answer session with the business volunteers and the students.
