The principles of differentiation are widely applied to curriculum planning and delivery in all subjects and should be used when planning careers programmes. A career is a highly individual thing and career learning needs to be differentiated. Everyone has different capabilities, career aspirations and motivations and everyone will pursue a different path through their life and career.
