Industrial Encounters: Good Practice for School Links
From CIEC Promoting Science, this guide aims to help schools and science-based companies make the best use of their opportunities to liaise together. It concentrates upon using link activities to enrich aspects of the school science curriculum but there are many principles in the guide, with a more general application.
There is extensive coverage of a range of topics and these include:
• Site visits
• Work experience
• Teacher secondment
• Careers conventions and evenings
• Mock interviews
• Financial support
• Enterprise schemes
• Agencies who may help to set up links
• Industry days
• Lectures and presentations
• Industrialists in the classroom
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
