Use the lesson plan below as a guide to deliver the presentation:
- Recap the assembly and ask pupils to recall key information.
- Encourage pupils to explore and match the job descriptions on page three of the follow-up lesson PowerPoint resource, either on the board or as a printed resource. Review the answers.
- Ask pupils to consider how adults make decisions about their jobs. Answers can be written on whiteboards or verbal. Use their thoughts to encourage class discussion. Examples: pursued an interest, listened to careers advice from school staff and adults when they were younger.
- Pupils to watch the first video link and make notes on mini-whiteboards about how the Alumni figures chose their jobs. Pupils to share these notes in class discussion
