Grown Up Me: Primary Careers Support


Encouraging children to explore and expand their ideas of who they could become.

There is increasing evidence that career-related learning in primary schools has many benefits, including broadening horizons, boosting engagement, raising aspirations, challenging stereotypes and improving transition skills in young pupils.

The Grown Up Me programme connects primary schools with local and regional employers and universities across a range of sectors to broaden and build primary pupils’ understanding of, and engagement with, the world of work.

Key events include:

  • Inspire sessions: For years 3 to 6, these highly engaging and participative sessions, led by experienced professionals from the sector, introduce pupils to a range of roles in industries including healthcare, leisure, digital and creative industries.
  • Spotlight workshops: For years 5 and 6, these practical workshops will connect pupils’ learning in the classroom to employability skills and sectors within the job market, at a specialist site relevant to the sector. The sectors currently included are construction, green industries and film.
  • University Open Day (years 5 and 6) at the University of East London (Docklands campus) gives pupils a taster of Higher Education and insight into life as a university student.
  • Network meetings and specialist CPD session to develop staff confidence, enable regular sharing of good practice and build links with employers.

Pricing: £2,500

Inspire Creative Industry session:

The location and timings were ideal… It was great that the speakers brought with them some props for the children to hold. Feedback from the children reflected this…They were really engaged with the speakers, who came across as passionate about their careers.
Feedback from the children was all positive. Many children saying to me, “I could do that” or “I want to be a choreographer”. They found it particularly interesting that many jobs were not 9 to 5. They spoke to me about the fact the people travel with their jobs. I think overall the children were interested and inspired by the speakers.
