Careers advice in primary schools

The free Primary Futures programme offers a way to discuss skills and deliver careers advice with primary pupils. Steve Iredale explains more

Primary Futures, the project, led by the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) in partnership with the Education and Employers Taskforce (EET), was launched in October 2014. We are an integral part of the Inspiring the Future family, developed by the EET, which also includes Inspiring Women and Inspiring Governors.

The aims of the Primary Futures project are simple. To support the raising of standards of achievement for all primary age children, broaden horizons and aspirations with regards to their own futures, while reinforcing the importance of literacy and numeracy in their learning both in school and later life. Helping children to see a clear link and purpose between their learning and their futures is a central theme of our work.
