Limit Less Careers Week 2022

Resources from the most recent event, in March 2022.

We believe there are no limits to what can be achieved with physics, or who should do it. 


Limit Less is the campaign from the Institute of Physics (IOP) to support young people to change the world and fulfil their potential by doing physics.

By giving young people access to relatable physics role models, working in exciting, relevant careers, we can demonstrate that doing physics after the age of 16 opens up an incredibly broad range of career options, encouraging young people to choose physics when the time comes.

The IOP celebrated National Careers Week again in 2022 with an inclusive programme designed for teachers across the UK and Ireland.

You can view details of the programme below and explore all of our Limit Less careers resources in one place.

Limit Less Careers Pack

This suite of resources is designed specifically to support teachers in the UK and Ireland to bring physics careers into their classrooms during National Careers Week and beyond! The digital pack contains profiles of role models, lesson plans and more. Please see full details below.

Our Limit Less Careers Pack contains:

A printable booklet aimed at 12-15-year-olds and their families

This booklet provides young people and their families with correct information about physics and the opportunities that doing physics post-16 can open up for their futures.

Teachers can use the booklet to challenge misconceptions about physics and show students that if they’re interested in the way the world works, and want to make a difference, then doing physics is right for them.
