Careers Planet

Careers Planet is a fun, space-themed resource 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 ready-to-run 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 set of resources needed in the lessons that can be printed or photocopied
