Career-related learning in childhood
Why focus on career-related learning in childhood and why now in the context of the global pandemic?
Career-related learning in childhood provides a foundation for capturing children's aspirations and the subsequent learning and work decisions of adolescence and adulthood. Career-related learning happens unintentionally through the experiences and observations of children in their families, schools and local communities and can happen intentionally in structured programs in school settings. Family socioeconomic background is a predictor of aspirations in children and adolescents.
The global pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities in learning and work, contributed to high unemployment rates, and increased the likelihood of greater numbers of people living in poverty. In a context of rising inequality and poverty, career-related learning could provide hope and foster aspiration in children whose families have been and may continue to be impacted by the pandemic into the future. Now, in the context of the global pandemic, is an opportunity to support children and their families to envision optimistic futures through career-related learning.
