    Careers Departmental Aims All children should follow a curriculum which contains all the essential elements to enable them to develop their full potential and make their contribution to society - whether in their chosen career, personal and family life, or social activities". (Education Reform (NI) Order - 1989) ​ Careers education has a central role to play in supporting the development of the knowledge, attitudes and skills required by young people in their adult working life. Careers education is one of the educational themes within the Northern Ireland Curriculum and therefore all post-primary schools must make appropriate cross-curricular provision. In addition schools are expected to provide discrete timetabled lessons. ​ The teaching of careers generally commences in Year 10 continuing through to Year 14 however, schools are increasingly introducing elements of careers education into Year 8 and 9 learning programmes. Careers Education Curriculum based on "Evaluating a Careers Programme" - DENI 1996 Curriculum Content ​ Guidance from DENI and CCEA has established 6 core components of pupil entitlement upon which a careers education programme should be based.
