   - positions to apply for and
   - information about different companies.
Learners can...
   - search for a specific firm, or
   - click a category to see a list of leading companies.
They can then click a logo to find out...
   - what a company does;
   - how many employees a company has;
   - about the companies key financial statistics and
   - if there are any jobs on offer.
Note: at the time of curating this, Craft is mostly centred on London & San Francisco, but many of the companies are very large and have a large reach.

Math@Work: Connecting Math to 21st Century Careers

Math@Work: Connecting Math to 21st Century Careers | technologies | Scoop.it
Scholastic's Math@Work is a web series that ties students' classroom learning to their career aspirations. Don't miss our premiere webisode on fashion design, featuring Project Runway's Tim Gunn!
John Dalziel's insight:

Math@Work is a video series from Scholastic. The seven part series shows learners how maths is used in fashion design.
Even if learners don't have any interest in fashion design, showing them a clip or two from this series could be good way to get them to start thinking about how mathematics appears in career fields that they might not expect.
Functional Skills may be more engaging for learners if they are challenged to find other careers that incorporate mathematics even though it might not be obvious.
