Each activity is a careers intervention that is embedded in curriculum studies, often focused on themes chosen by teachers as relevant to the subject content of their lessons.
Once you’ve registered our School Support Team will be in touch to arrange a time to chat. Together we can work out the best way the I’m a… projects can support your careers programme.
Teachers can then sign their class up to the activity and take part within themes across the school year – when their class is studying genetics, for example, they can use I’m a Scientist to explore the profiles of geneticists, technicians and engineers, who are all working with DNA on a daily basis.
