Linking curriculum teaching to careers is every teacher's responsibility. A consistent approach across year groups will ensure that students have a range of information, skills and experiences which will help them to make informed decisions about their future pathways. All teachers and support staff should promote employability skills across the curriculum and challenge students to raise their aspirations.
