STEM Choices: Personal Capabilities
These documents from the Department for Education provide tools to support the development of young students' knowledge and understanding of their personal skills and capabilities.
• Personal Capabilities Framework
This chart presents three domains for personal capability - thinking, self-belief and collaboration. Each domain contains a set of skills and a range of behavioural indicators that exemplify them.
• Activating Personal Capabilities in STEM Careers Activities and Events
This document suggests approaches to developing young students' knowledge and understanding of their personal skills and capabilities, so that they can make better choices about which careers and options suit their strengths best.
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.
