New ways to support career learning in primary education

CASCAID is excited to be taking part in a new Erasmus+ European Project looking at new models and innovative resources to support career learning in primary education.

The JOBLAND project aims to help children explore the world of work, strengthen competences, raise aspirations, and broaden horizons. The project is a partnership of six countries: Romania, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Denmark, and the UK and will take place over the next 18 months. You can see the details of the project at www.joblandproject.eu.

CASCAID’s project team attended a recent project meeting in Barcelona Spain. This was hosted by DEP Institut, a research-led organisation specialising in applied sociology and career guidance services across Spain.

At the meeting, the project team took part in a series of workshops, presentations, and working groups aimed at delivering the outputs of the project, which can all be viewed on the project website.

The meeting also included a review of the national focus groups which took place earlier this year with educators in each country and CASCAID presented the results of the UK focus groups.

CASCAID will be working with the project group and educators in the UK to design a new tool to support career learning in primary schools, building on existing models of best practice.

Part of the project will involve running a series of pilot programmes in UK primary schools. Teachers and students will have the chance to test the new tool and feedback on its design. If you are interested in taking part please contact the project manager, Mark Prince mprince@cascaid.co.uk for more information.
