Hi Frances

This resource is amazing.... it has SO many possibilities.
As a start, I'm going to use it extensively for the Year 10 Career Ed class I have with the students from our Support Unit, however, it certainly has wider applications.

Thanks for sharing it

I used it with my students from the Year 10 Support Unit class I have for career education and they found it easy to use and informative.

I wrote to Clare to get some advice as one of her videos which had disappeared off the Internet and I used this video in an activity. She replied...

Hi Frances,

Thanks for getting in touch and THANK YOU for profiling my work.

There are a few other videos available of me talking about my book or my work, but I’m not sure any will suit you as well as that MADE lecture. But just in case:







I hope this is useful to you.

You might also like to include a link on your website to my Radio national history series/podcast, Shooting the Past. I have been told by teachers that it makes a very good teaching device.


FYI, I am in the process of having a new website built as the old one is no longer fit for purpose.

Let me know if you need anything further.

Cheers, and thanks again.

The online resource is amazing. You have certainly put hours and hours of work into it. Can’t wait to get our kids to use it once it becomes an online Learning Destination [at Children's University]!! 

Cheers and all the best.

Hi Frances,

I just wanted to write a quick note to explain the enjoyment and excitement that was felt from my Links to Learning students at Crookwell High School this term as they found the "On the Job" site and searched around. The group of year 8 girls were thrilled and inspired with one leaving wanting to become an engineer (she didn’t even know this job existed before this experience)

It is an easy to use and engage with site that provides many opportunities for students.

We appreciate your work and the development of this fantastic site.

Thanks for your great work
Kind Regards
