Teachers we know how hard you work and that you have to embed Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance into the curriculum in line with Ofqual and the Gatsby Benchmarks for good careers education.  To support you to do this we have developed resources to enable you to do this and they are all free for you to download and use in your classroom. 

In addition to the is we also have a Business Enterprise competition linked to the lesson plans which can be run as an individual activity, an enterprise day or in conjunction with the lesson plans.  This activity links to the Gatsby benchmarks 2 & 5, Learning from career labour market information and encounters with employers.   The competition involves designing, branding and marketing a new vehicle to a target audience and creating a pitch to see their ideas.


How the resources support you:

  • 17 lesson plans with teachers notes, student packs and handouts
  • All linked to the key stage 3 & 4 National Curriculum
  • Aligned to Gatsby Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum learning to careers
  • Free for you to download and use
  • With support from a MATRIX standard Careers team
