It has never been more important to help young people develop the essential skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil their potential and thrive in the world of work. We at Big Green Fox are therefore committed to careers education starting earlier, from primary school, and supporting educators in delivering competency, not just content, based learning which helps young people better understand the purpose of school.
Our first resource, Career Detectives, is a powerful tool to help teachers embed careers education within the core curriculum. The resource raises aspirations by making links between educational subjects and future career opportunities and broadens young people’s horizons by educating them about the wide range of opportunities in the world of work.
Our latest resource, Panjango, offers a radically different approach to careers education and gives learning context and purpose by directly linking the curriculum to work-related challenges. The resource enables students to learn about the world of work in an interactive and engaging virtual learning environment whilst developing the knowledge, skills and experience needed to thrive in life after school.
