If the pupils are going out on their
own it would be advisable to have the questionnaire stamped with
the official school stamp to validate it for those being interviewed.
An extra sheet of paper may be needed for long answers.
The questions should draw out:
• why people do these jobs
• what is involved
• how much time they give to it (if a paid job whether they
stick to a set number of hours)
• what they gain from it
• what qualities are needed for this type of work
follow up topic
Draw together what has been learnt, especially about people's motives
and the personal qualities needed for these jobs.
Make a display or book using the questionnaires with pictures from
the local newspapers or photographs taken personally.
