The design of the resource will allow for this activity to take place over an extended period of time and can be delivered in sections to suit the pace which meets the needs of the student.

This activity will allow students to improve their knowledge and understanding of the world of work. After watching a specific careers related documentary, students will work with a teacher to share their thoughts, feedback and any knowledge gained in a group discussion.

Resources include activities and all supporting documents and have been developed in partnership with SEND schools within their region. Once complete the page will contain links to 10 resources developed through the SEND community of practice Innovation Fund.

This activity will help students by:

1) Make your students aware that people they see as celebrities also have overcome the barriers caused by their own Learning Difficulties / Disabilities.

2) Understand that those with an additional need can still be successful.

3) Raise the aspirations and the career goals that students may have.

4) Encourage the students to discuss, research and ask questions to find the answers.

5) Explore different career choices that may not have been seen through using local LMI information.

The resource has been split into 3 sub activities; therefore, you can complete the activities across several lessons if required
