iCould careers collection
The iCould careers collection provides invaluable insight into what is possible in work and offers different ways for students to think about careers. The collection hosts short career videos, showcasing real-life storytellers and providing an inside view of their current job and a personal account of how they got there.
The videos can be a useful resource for teachers to help bring careers to life as part of a lesson. They can also be used by STEM Ambassadors running sessions in school and at STEM Clubs.
