About KidZania.

Take a trip outside the classroom for experiential learning at its best with KidZania London, at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush.

Let aspirations and inspiration soar as students step into the indoor city built just for kids aged 4 to 14. Here they can work, earn and play just like the real world, all in a safe and inclusive environment thanks to KidZania’s ever-expanding programme of careers role-play.

From learning what it takes to fly the skies with British Airways in a real-life flight-training simulator, to sniffing out a good story with Metro newspaper, many careers are run in partnership with real-life brands to enhance understanding of real jobs and the skills required.

Career-related learning in primary and secondary schools allows children to understand themselves, as well as who they could become and enable them to reach their full potential. By starting careers early, this can bring a lasting impact on students development and perceptions of different occupations.

Activities are designed with reference to the National Curriculum, to help bring classroom learning to life around STEM, Literacy and PSHE. The cross-curricular interactive experience allows students to apply knowledge learnt in the classroom in a practical environment, and helps develop the skills needed for the world of work – from resilience to teamwork and problem solving.
