The Made It In Doncaster video project raises aspirations by telling the stories of inspirational people who have lived or worked in Doncaster.
The project features professionals who work in Doncaster's current and future key industries and sectors. Each video brings awareness to both the variety of professional roles that are out there and pathways into them. In each video, a primary school pupil interviews an inspirational figure who tells the story of their career journey. Their answers are candid and offer an insight into the interviewee's personal development and resilience.
We understand that timetabling can be complex task. Introducing a new concept into your already jam-packed curriculum isn't easy, especially when you're busy with things like SATs preparation!
To make your life easier, we've included an assembly and follow-up lesson plan in our resources. Both are available to download as PowerPoint files so they're easy to access and edit. We encourage you to amend the content as you see fit to reflect your school's values and ethos.
Current recommendations suggest that careers-related education is most effective with years 5 and 6, but in line with recent research, we've made sure all the resources in our teaching pack are adaptable for all KS2 pupils.
