Science in the workplace

These resources utilise ways that careers information can be incorporated into science lessons, particularly practical work. It enables the science teacher to relate their subject specialism to potential learning pathways that students can follow. In turn, students can see where scientific content and skill sets taught to them can be directly transferred in the world of work facing them.

Science teachers can influence young people’s choice of career post 16 and act as motivators to allow them to see a purpose that links with their own future studies or careers and using the resources that embed this during practical science is a vital step.
