A teacher and her past female student on a couch

Most people think career-related learning is for high school, but research shows we need to start talking about this much younger.

Building on the success of the Little Ripples parents campaign developed in 2019, Anthologie was tasked to extend this work for teachers. Teachers’ play a critical role in shaping children’s potential from an early age and our aim was to engage teachers to better support and empower the next generation.

We brought together past students and their favourite primary school teacher, reconnecting them after many years apart. Harnessing the power of storytelling, students candidly shared anecdotes about how their teacher impacted their career and, in doing so, showed the amazing ripple effect of these formative experiences.

It was super emotional for the teachers to see just how much of an impact they had made.

Digital e-Readers

Along with the video, we created a suite of resources that could be utilised by teachers in class. Working in partnership with educators, illustrators and writers, we delivered a short series of Little Ripple children’s eBooks—all available as free, downloadable resources that teachers can use as a fun way to explore age-appropriate career subject matter with their students.  

Three book covers featuring main character, Rosa, on the covers. Titles read: Rosa helps a neighbour, Rosa at the Sheep Far,, and Rosa and the New Library.

Activity Sheets

We also developed some activities that teachers can use as a fun way to explore age-appropriate career subject matter with their students. We refined our 10 activities with feedback from a group of teachers from all over Australia.
