“Ignoring the process of career development occurring in childhood is similar to a gardener disregarding the quality of the soil in which a garden will be planted.”
At what age should discussions with children about careers begin?
According to a report, primary school teachers believe children should be learning about the world of work and different jobs in their first years of primary school.
Nearly half (47%) believe this should start from age 5 and under.
A further 21% believe this should start from age 5 – 7 in year 1 and 2.
