Introducing primary children to the world of work

A new survey published by Education and Employers in partnership with TES and NAHT reveals the importance teachers place on introducing children to the world of work. The survey asks 250 primary schools heads and teaches across England about their opinions on career learning in primary and its impact.

Among the key findings:

  • The majority of teachers answering our survey believe children should be learning about the world of work and different jobs in their first years of primary school.
    • Nearly half (47%) believe this should start from Age 5 and under
    • A further 21% believe this should start from Age 5 – 7 in year 1 and 2
  • Overwhelming majority of primary schools were already carrying out activities with the aim of increasing children’s understanding of the world of work.
