Effective CRL Implementation

So there are lots and lots of useful resources on this website, but so what, you already have a packed and well developed curriculum.

Where does all of this fit?

The resources on this site have been designed from that perspective. In the main they are not whole lesson sequences, they are there to complement and extend the provision you already have. Use the planners to ensure your provision is progressive and planned. Embedding CRL (Career Related Learning) into the curriculum can complement regular use of resources for assemblies or showcase sessions.

Research tells us that this approach not only improves life chances and lifelong earnings but even in the short term there is a measurable impact on attainment and achievement in school.

The resources linked below allow you to plan for a whole school approach so that teachers will know where content is when they need it. Of course the information can be added into your planning formats as required.
