Engaging students to explore career ideas is no easy task. Many institutions and colleges often tag on career education around the core subjects or invite speakers in classes on occasional basis. Others have a more integrated approach and provide quality guidance activities with a career professional. Which ever end the institution is at, the vital need to have students thinking, exploring and being inspired on their future pathways remains important. When it comes to decisions on school subjects and options beyond high school, the need for clarity on their career plans becomes all the more necessary.
We at Career Guidance Charts seek to support the work of schools in providing careers information in graphic format. Our career posters and infographics suit a generation of students that want the information at an instant. We answer the question? What can I do with English? What can I do with Geography? with our range of career charts that point to potential pathways. It only needs a glance from a student whilst waiting for teacher, or standing in a queue to see one of our vibrant career posters that might inspire them to ponder for a moment a potential career pathway. For those students with no real ideas, the need for such infographics to engage them with where they can take a subject of interest or skill they have can prove incredibly helpful.
Having displays in schools also adds the greater sense that a school is gearing its students to the future world of work. The intense reality of education and learning meets the external world of careers and points your students to the life that is beyond the four walls. With over 130 career posters in our collection, we are confident we can provide the career infographics you might need for class, corridor, career library or career resource area.
