The Curiosity Museum Careers workshop
How can careers lessons be more inspiring?
The Curiosity Museum helps your learners discover a new way of exploring their career and life options, in an engaging, in-school careers workshop for the curious, aged 10+.
We know that choosing career options can be an anxious time for many young people. There is a pressure to make important decisions and young learners often aren’t sure which jobs best match their skills.
That’s why we created the Curiosity Museum Live, an expert-led, hands-on, mobile careers workshop specially designed for school and college settings. We are developing a brand new Curiosity Museum Online for launch in 2022.

In each session, led by our Team Curiosity practitioners, learners uncover their career paths inspired by the Museum’s curious objects and prompted by each participant’s skill set and aspirations. Designed to be accessible and enjoyable for students of all abilities, the Curiosity Museum brings an inspiring experience into schools, which encourages critical thinking and supports the UK careers strategy.
Whether learners are just beginning to think about jobs, confused by the range of career options out there or interested in exploring life options – the Curiosity Museum Live is a unique coaching experience, encouraging young people to think deeply about their options, open up new ideas and raise their aspirations.
