The Worlds of Work careers education resource connects secondary school students of all ages with life beyond school by investigating the question: “What does it take to succeed in life and work?”

Tuning in

A tuning in activity helps students to define and focus on the issues they will be dealing with in the unit of work.

Finding Out

Students will need to obtain more information about the issues they are going to investigate. They can identify questions of interest and research these either in small groups or on their own. Once information is gathered, it can be shared using chosen communication methods e.g. short presentations. Students can continue finding out by completing a range of investigations, including gathering data. They use appropriate methods to present and communicate what they have found out.
