Year 8 Careers in History Pack

This pack is designed to be used as flexibly as possible - different schools may wish to use it with year groups other than Year 8, and to use it in different ways. For example, some schools may wish to use the individual learning resources as part of lessons, or as stand-alone homework task sheets. Other schools may wish to use it as a pack of resources that will enable students to work fairly independently on a homework project lasting roughly half a term, or to help structure an enrichment, cross-curricular or otherwise devolved from the timetable learning day of on the theme of careers and the world of work. The overall aim, however it is used, is to help students develop their knowledge and understanding of both history and employment-related issues and their skills - both historical and wider key skills. The pack can be downloaded as both a PDF and a Word document. This is to offer you the flexibility to change tasks, or sources, to best suit your school environment and situation. In particular - and depending on whether your students are going to complete these tasks online or on paper, and other related issues, you may like to adapt the student's introduction on the next page.
