Careers Planet


Updated and relaunched for 2018/19!

Shortlisted for UK Careers Development Award 2019!

Careers Planet is fun, space-themed lesson plans and games in which pupils become astronauts and voyage to a make-believe galaxy to discover 23 Careers Planets and the jobs that exist on them.

The pack of activities has been developed by careers professionals to introduce Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils to the world of work in an imaginative way:

  • Launches the concept of job families - each planet represents a job family
  • Boosts knowledge and understanding of careers available
  • Encourages investigation of jobs and how they match pupils' likes and dislikes
  • Explores the realities of the labour market - competition for jobs, entry routes and requirements
  • Expands pupils' horizons about what the future world of work might look like for them

A ready-to-run pack of activities

Careers Planet comes in a durable carry case containing everything needed to set up and run each activity. The pack includes:

  • Six lesson plans with further activities that can be used within lessons or in shorter tutor time periods
  • A set of resources needed in the lessons that can be printed or photocopied
  • 92 job profiles (four jobs per planet) updated to include the new GCSE grading
  • Five A3 game boards for Space Mission lesson, which can also be used as visuals in Voyages of Discovery lessons
  • Careers Planet galaxy image to project onto screens/whiteboards
  • An overview of Careers, Employability and Enterprise education aged 5-14, including how Careers Planet can help schools to meet quality awards, the CDI careers framework and the Gatsby Benchmarks
