S3 pupils careers aspirations and views on language learning




In May 2005, Scottish CILT undertook a SEED-funded nationwide survey of just under 1500 pupils in the S3 cohort of Scottish secondary schools. Pupils in 47 randomly selected Scottish secondary schools completed a questionnaire that explored their career aspirations and how these related to their views on language learning. The responses of S3 pupils are significant because the SEED’s educational policy A Curriculum for Excellence is proposing to give pupils in this year group the opportunity to have a greater say in their subject choices. The findings therefore provide useful indicators for SEED, head teachers, careers advisers and language teachers in Scottish secondary schools.
