Careers curriculum 2021-22

We intend to embed an aspirational strand into our curriculum that exposes all of our children to a wide range of opportunities and careers, giving children knowledge about high education and the world of work.

 Embed career-related learning within our curriculum offer.
PSHEThere are numerous opportunities in Jigsaw for teaching and learning about financial capability and economic well-being.
The Puzzle ‘Dreams and Goals’ holds most of the explicit lessons on finances, where it looks at enterprise and fundraising, aspirations, jobs and careers.
For the younger year groups, learning intentions are focused on perseverance, achieving goals and thinking about what needs to happen now so that things can be better in the future.
For older year groups, the emphasis is more on jobs and careers, and also on supporting others with fundraising, etc. For example, in Year 5, there are lessons on children’s dream jobs and the steps they need to take to get there, what people in a variety of jobs earn and how everyone makes a contribution in society.
The end of Puzzle outcomes also offer opportunities for enterprise and learning about money and finance e.g. building a garden of Dreams and Goals enables children to collaborate to raise money for charity.
There are extra lesson plans dealing explicitly with money, spending, saving etc on the Community Area for Jigsaw schools to use to supplement the lessons already in the Jigsaw Programme if they wish to.
