About the Course

A carousel of activities to explore the geography of where jobs can take us.

The activity starts with an introduction to jobs that involve travel or living in a different city, region or country. The main activity is a carousel around four different career stations, where the students ‘travel’ to different parts of the city, region or world to use the equipment, practise their skills for success, and complete various job challenges. If time allows, extra challenges include ‘Careers Charades’ and a variety of communication games.

KS1 adaptation – Depending on the group’s ability, rather than rotating around the stations in groups, we will visit each station as a class with a different group doing a student demonstration at each station, still allowing all pupils to be involved in an activity.

Logistics and Planning:

This activity ideally needs to be delivered in a large space such as the school hall however it can be adapted to be delivered in the classroom.

This can be delivered as a half day workshop to one class or a full day to two classes, one morning and one afternoon. We can discuss break times and lunch times and adapt to ensure both classes receive an equal amount of time.

Typically for a full day we would look to break it down like this:

Class one - 9:00 – 11:45 (with a break)

Class two - 12:15 – 3:30 (with lunch break)
