Career education in a primary school

Jenni Proctor
Jenni Proctor has a Career Development consultancy, Career Clarity, and also works part time as the Teacher Librarian at Mary MacKillop School
Over the last three years at Mary MacKillop Catholic Primary School in Brisbane we have developed a Career Education program that is deeply embedded in our curriculum, and enhanced by an annual career awareness event. All of the career education in the school, with the exception of the annual event, is part of normal classroom teaching and learning. Units of work have been adapted for the program but the workload of teachers has not risen. Integrated Career Education is not another area of teaching and learning, but another layer of understanding.
