It’s been a while since I last did one of these (or indeed these)…

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to contribute to Primary Resources over the past eleven years. Your material has helped teachers across and the UK and all over the world. Please keep the resources coming (and I’ll keep on adding them!)

Career Awareness Resources February 4, 2010

Posted by admin in : P.S.H.E. , add a comment

Tony Crowley has adapted his excellent secondary school career awareness resources to make them useful in a primary school setting. The materials, which are illustrated, teach about the world of work through games, group activities, quizzes, questionnaires and worksheets. Because of the size of the files, they’ve been made available through the social publishing website Scribd.

Click on the links below to view each of the files. You’ll need to register with the Scribd to download the files (which is free).
