Digital Careers Week & Digital Leaders

Technology is changing the world we live in, the majority of primary school children today will end up in jobs that don’t exist yet. Digital Career Week aims to excite primary children about technology and its new careers. It offers a up-close-and-personal view of an array of new occupations, especially ones they have never heard of. It can broaden their perspectives beyond classic, familiar jobs such as footballer or firefighter. This workshop we offer ideas for organising and running your own Digital Careers Week. It will also discuss the power of the Digital Leader scheme to enrich and support digital literacy in school.
