It has been written by NUSTEM (Northumbria University), supported by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (North East LEP), partners who share the aim of improving children’s access to careers at primary level. Support for this research was provided through the Capacity in Policy Engagement (CAPE) project funded by Research England.
Career-related learning (CRL) encompasses the wide range of activities provided by schools to give children experiences of and exposure to education, transitions and the world of work. It supports pupils to broaden their horizons and aspirations and develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to be successful, regardless of their starting point.
