How to use these lesson resources

The programme is aimed at students in key stages 3 - 5 in England, Wales, Northern Ireland or in S1 - S4 in Scotland, with a flexible suite of resources and content, all adaptable to deliver according to age group and to work with existing timetables. You can simply show a ten-minute Where I Work interview at the start of a curriculum lesson, linking a subject to a career – or you can design activities based around the Sector Overview or one or more of the interviews, such as encouraging students to find out more using the 'Explore' tool  on the home page of this website.

Lesson resources for museums, galleries and heritage

  • Sector overview (three minutes) – celebrate museums, galleries and heritage with this overview of the sub-sector.
  • Where I work (approximately ten to thirteen minutes each) – museums, galleries and heritage professionals, ranging from a youth programmer to a National Trust engagement officer, talk about their roles. You can use these at the start of a curriculum lesson. On each Where I work page, we show which subjects are referred to in the film and we suggest three or four ice-breaker questions to get the students thinking about careers.
