Growing careers for positive change

Growing careers for positive change

Both lessons in this pack guide students to consider how their values can inform their career choices in order to make a difference to their local and global community and how holding and acting upon these values can affect wellbeing. The resources emphasise the link with climate change, highlighting that the career we choose is one way to make a difference about issues we care about.

Other topics covered include:

Strength, interests, skills and qualities

in relation to future careers choices and employability

Career identity

including values in relation to work

Goal-setting and action-planning

based on personal values

Identifying organisations

for employment that align with personal values

An accompanying Teacher Guide outlines how to plan the lessons into your PSHE curriculum, and provides advice on creating a safe learning environment for your students and signposting to additional support (including further careers advice).


PSHE Association Subject Specialist Bethan Miller said:
“We were excited by the opportunity to work with the Environment Agency on these career resources, not only due to their value in educating students about career opportunities — as part of the Economic Wellbeing and Careers element of PSHE — but also as they are so clearly linked to wellbeing, personal values and identity. And these resources come at a timely point; young people are increasingly looking for ways to help protect their environment and empower themselves to make autonomous choices regarding their future.”
