Exploring Physics: Uncovering Choice
From the Institute of Physics, this pack of activities aims to encourage teachers to work together in providing a consistent approach to careers advice and guidance. It will also help teachers to build on their own knowledge of physics-based careers and, in turn, help students to make informed choices based on accurate information.
The activities can be run as a workshop that brings together personal tutors, year heads, subject teachers, career coordinators and Connexions personal advisers. The workshop takes around 90 minutes and is most effective with at least five members of staff from at least two departments.
The activity pack includes:
* clear instructions on how to lead the workshop along with presentation slides.
* a number of activities that enable attendees to explore and share knowledge of physics-based careers. These activities can also be used with students.
* the tools to start developing a whole-school action plan.
