About On Your Marks
A comprehensive scheme of learning developed by King’s College London for pupils aged 11-14. On Your Marks expands pupils’ knowledge of university and develops their metacognitive skills. Three units are available to download, each comprising six lessons.
By providing well-structured, fully-resourced lesson plans we aim to make it easier for teachers and schools to inspire young people to think about their futures.
On Your Marks is modelled on the highly successful King's Scholars programme and offers a framework for teaching pupils metacognitive skills.
On Your Marks has been developed in line with the Gatsby Benchmarks for good careers guidance and provides a comprehensive KS3 careers curriculum for your school.
The fully resourced scheme is, and always will be, completely free and is specifically designed to support pupils eligible for the pupil premium.
