We have made some real progress this week and welcomed our partnership with DANCOP to support students into the next transition of their education. We are also delighted that we are now transferring the work that we have undertaken in secondary schools and are establishing ourselves within the primary school sector with a roll out of our successful ‘Let’s Talk Careers’ events.

The transition to secondary school is key and we know from our work in this sector that many ideas and perceptions of careers and pathways are cemented very early on in education. It is therefore important we have some input during the primary stage of the student journey. Our ‘Let’s Talk Career’ events have had a fantastic reception in our primary schools. We have delivered them in a fun and interactive way. The aim is not to narrow down students’ choices at this stage but to promote discussion as the evidence is clear that students are formulating their views from a very early age of what careers are suitable to them.
