About Careers at KS3

Careers form part of the KS3 Economic Well-Being and Financial Capability programme of study. It aims to teach children that everyone has a career or pathway through learning and the world of work. They identify the skills, attitudes and qualities that are needed to increase their chances of employability. It contributes to pupils’ self-development by encouraging them to see a positive future for themselves and assessing their own interests, skills and abilities. 

Pupils consider different types of work, such as employment, self-employment and voluntary. They consider different work roles and what is needed in order to undertake these. On Teaching-Resources-UK, as part of their 14 day trial, they offer resources on options for year 9 students, work, wages and professional skills and career planning. The Battersea Dogs and Cats home allow visits where they provide educational talks, a tour of the location and introductions to the animals. This could help with those pupils who want to undertake a career with animals. Also the visit can teach pupils about respect, care and appreciation.
