Think about where 7-11 year olds get their information on the world of work: their parents, friends’ parents, television or online. But they aren’t being exposed to the full range of existing jobs, or finding out about the jobs of the future. That’s where you come in! 

Children can’t be what they can’t see and you can help children to be open to a wide range of jobs beyond what they already know what exists.

The facts that fed our mission…

1. “Gender stereotypes are defined between 5 and 7 years of age”- ‘Inspiring The Future – Redraw the Balance’

2. According to the OECD PISA Report, there are only “minimal changes” in attitude towards career options between the ages of 7 and 17.

3. “A survey of 600 human resources by Wiley Education Services and Future Workplaces shows that 64% (nearly two-thirds) see a skills gap in their companies”

#1001jobs is the first step in creating a tool for primary schools that will give children access to engaging and entertaining videos of real people doing real jobs.

Our aim is to road test the videos on 101 primary schools and create a report that will help us understand what works when it comes to exposing children to the wider world of work.

What we are looking for:

Show us your job, what you do, how you do it, what you love about your job and what the most interesting or enjoyable aspect of the job is.

#1001jobs is a campaign that aims to give primary school children increased exposure to the wide world of work. Together we can…

Build the foundations for a future that is rich with a diverse and vibrant workforce.

Inspire and empower the school children of this Country.

Break down socio-economic barriers, smash through stereotypes, and

overcome stigma attached to what a child believes they can and can’t be when they grow up.
